With a cast of 14 and a live band, the sell-out production of The Firebird Ball ran for six weeks and received The Observer Review of the Year award for Best Out-of-Theatre Experience.

Fusing the myth of the Firebird with Romeo and JulietThe Firebird Ball played out across a vast disused factory site.

An epic flight of the imagination that weaves around every corner of the crumbling Offley Works, this site specific extravaganza is a breath-taking slow burner that subtly works its way into your blood. It’s baffling and exhilarating and the rewards are mesmerising. The images will haunt you for nights beyond.
