Duet by Vincent Dance Theatre published on 2011/10/27 15:55:16 +0000 Music from Vincent Dance Theatre's production Punch Drunk, composed by John Avery Against a backdrop of decaying theatrical grandeur, Punch Drunk finds six extraordinary performers moving like ghosts through a disused theatre. Slipping in and out of half-remembered acts, they piece together the tatters of a show long since past its prime. Emotionally raw and darkly humorous, Punch Drunk is an enthralling journey into the world of vaudeville and burlesque. Created in 2004 in celebration of Vincent Dance Theatre’s tenth anniversary. Punch Drunk was originally commissioned in 2004 by Sheffield Theatres, and the Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster and funded by Arts Council England and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
