Punchdrunk's 'Sleep No More'

Produced by SMG Live and Punchdrunk, Sleep No More Shanghai is an award-winning theatrical experience that tells Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Macbeth through a darkly cinematic lens. The story unfolds through an awe-inspiring blend of acrobatic choreography, film noir soundtrack, and countless rooms of densely detailed atmosphere. As an immersive theatre, it's widely known as it breaks down the traditional isolation of watching and performing relationships by placing no boundaries between the stage and the audience. Guests move freely through the epic world of the story at their own pace. Truly a not to be missed theatrical experience.

- Aesthetic inspiration comes from the noir films of Hitchcock, in the mid-20th century.

- Integrating local Chinese elements and setting the story back in Shanghai in the 1930s.

- 90 cinematically detailed rooms ranging across the five floors of a vast disused building.

Guests under the age of 16 are prohibited to enter
