More Information on The Day I Fell Into A Book
Welcome to The Institute.
We conduct experiments in to the power of imaginations.
We want to know what happens to your mind when you read.
We want to get inside your heads.
It is all perfectly safe. Trust us.
The Day I Fell Into A Book is an immersive storytelling adventure for 8-12 year olds and their grown ups, that explores the magic of reading and the vitality of young imaginations. Using binaural sound recordings, intricate lighting technology and projection, the audience is taken into a lost world of classic tales. The stories seep into the room and come alive all around us as we venture further into the deep recesses of our minds. A 3 dimensional sound and theatre experience for everyone who loves myths, legends and reading.
The Day I Fell Into A Book is a Pay What You Decide event part of Tonight We Fly, a week-long festival presented by Fuel.
