The Crash of the Elysium
Many of you will remember the mysterious hidden clues that were found on the official Doctor Who website for the first 6 episodes of series 6. The last one said “message interrupted,” and that seemed to be the end of it.
Well now the mystery has been solved and it actually isn’t connected to the ongoing story arc. It is, in fact, an interactive Doctor Who live show called The Crash of the Elysium, by theatre company Punchdrunk.
MIF and the BBC invite you to an extraordinary live event for children aged 6-12 and their families.
Award-winning theatre company Punchdrunk join forces with the Doctor Who team to create an unforgettable new show especially for MIF 2011.
Punchdrunk are world famous for their immersive theatre spectaculars. Following their sold-out, smash hit ‘It Felt Like a Kiss’ at MIF 2009, they return to thrill and amaze in what will be one of the most talked about shows of this year’s festival.
In ‘The Crash of the Elysium’ children become the stars of an exhilarating live Doctor Who adventure.
There are two different types of performance of The Crash of the Elysium – Children Only Performances and Family Performances.
Please note that this show is specially made for children aged 6-12. Children outside this age range will not be admitted, nor will adults unless they are accompanying children as part of the Family Performances.
It opens as part of the Manchester International Festival on the 30th June and runs until 17th July 2011.
