NNF - 451 Performance

Periplum & Corn Exchange Newbury

Friday 22 May 10pm

Closing the Festival’s Outdoor programme, this incendiary open air performance explores the story of a dystopian society where books are banned and firemen employed to burn them.

Inspired by Ray Bradbury’s visionary novel Fahrenheit 451, this is a breathtaking 360-degree surround performance with immersive sound installation, high-octane dramatic action and pyrotechnics to engulf your senses.

Set in a world where people who seek happiness in high-speed games and acts of violence are rewarded, 451 tells the story of one man’s journey from fireman to fugitive. As our society witnesses a rise in information monitoring and attacks on freedom of expression, Bradbury’s classic text seems disturbingly prophetic. We might even believe that in the future books will once again hold a forbidden knowledge….

Suitable for ages 8+

Performance runs: c. 45 mins (no interval)
