Media Molecule teams up with Punchdrunk theatre group

LittleBigPlanet creator Media Molecule has joined forces with theatre group Punchdrunk for a project based on in-development title Dreams.

Collaboration is a big part of what we do at Media Molecule… we’re always on the lookout for new creative partnerships and ways to expand our horizons,” the studio said.

With Dreams, we have a vision that goes beyond the world of gaming. This new collaboration will explore the crossover between digital and theatrical performance, offering a unique opportunity to work across two rapidly evolving sectors.

Punchdrunk has been a pioneer in the world of theatre since 2000. Offering unique theatrical experiences where the lines between space, performer and spectator are constantly shifting, Punchdrunk has developed a phenomenal reputation for transformative productions that focus as much on the audience and the performance space as on the performers and narrative.

Audience members embark on their own adventure as they roam through intricately designed worlds, rediscovering the childlike excitement of exploring the unknown. The choice of what to watch and where to go is yours alone, meaning each person has an entirely unique journey through the experience.”

Punchdrunk is also on the hunt for a new researcher for the project.
