Type: Spectacle, Theatre


Duration: Approx. 60 mins


This spectacular, immersive performance depicts a society where reading is forbidden and firemen are employed to burn books (451 degrees Farenheit is the temperature at which paper burns). This London premiere is inspired by the classic novel by Ray Bradbury and will feature incredible staging with moving structures, an emotionally compelling score and of course pyrotechnics.
