Practitioner: Joe Bunce for Paperfinch

Creating Immersive Theatre


We will discuss the range of practises in this field – from Punchdrunk to Ontroerend Goed to murder mysteries and Santa’s Grottos – and create two tiny immersive theatre adaptations, looking at audience roles, sensory design and site-specificity.


Joe Bunce is the Artistic Director of Paperfinch Theatre. He wrote and directed the immersive children’s adaptation of The Nutcracker which was at NSDF15, which recently transferred to Theatr Clwyd to sell-out audiences. He is currently writing a new Christmas show for Theatr Clwyd, alongside several other projects with other theatres.
