Get ready to discover a new dimension and explore a sensory world at your own pace.

Burnt City Immersive is a unique immersive walkthrough theatre experience where you get to become part of the story and action.

It is a brainchild of Punchdrunk, who have been creating genre-defying experiences for audiences around the world.

Their projects, such as Burnt City Immersive, blend classical texts with cutting edge technology to create large-scale, site-specific theatrical work for roaming audiences to enjoy.

“As the smoke soars on wings to heaven, so sinks our city,” is one of the lines in the performance.

The story revolves around a mythical world of Gods and mortals rising from the ashes after the fall of Troy.

Set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic Greece, you’ll get to set foot on the neon backstreets of Downtown Troy and uncover secrets and prophecies.

In this labyrinthine playground, the furies keep an eye on mortals as their fate plays out.

You’ll experience each scene in a non-linear fashion and watch the story unfold depending on the path you choose to take.

The performance will take place in One Cartridge Place, Woolwich, London SE18 6ZR.

Please note that the experience will last up to three hours and you’ll be asked to wear a Punchdrunk mask for the duration of the performance.

Make sure to wear comfy shoes as you will be walking the whole time. It can be challenging to walk together with your companions as you may be invited to enter a path exclusively for you.

To make the most out of this extraordinary experience, it’s recommended to go alone, but this is not mandatory.

Just like the theme of the performance, you’re free to choose your adventure, whether on your own or with your companions.
