Tunnel 228


Exquisite, visceral theatre.

Evening Standard

It’s a sure sign that a company is firing on all cylinders when it doesn’t just keep repeating the same formula but tries something different … as if the future is already here, without us having noticed its arrival.

The Guardian

No company has done more to expand the idea of what theatre can do than the engrossing, meticulous, shrewdly secretive and constantly changing Punchdrunk.

The Observer

Inspired by Fritz Lang’s silent masterpiece, Metropolis, Tunnel 228 showcased the work of 23 artists working in the unclassifiable territory between theatre and contemporary art in the long-forgotten tunnels beneath Waterloo Station.

Presented by Punchdrunk and the Old Vic.
