Sleep no more
A British theatre company has been wowing audiences in New York this month with an unusual version of Macbeth.
The production, called Sleep No More, uses dance and visual theatre, and some 100 rooms across six floors of a warehouse space dressed to look like an old hotel.
Cool Hunting's latest video interviews Livi Vaughan, Associate Designer for Punch Drunk, who played a large part in assembling the massive interactive piece Sleep No More, currently playing in the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC. An intensely detailed set, Livi talks about the challenges and excitement of Sleep No More's decor and the challenges of inventing a driving enigmatic space that will continuously engage the audience.
