Dramaturgy by Brad Long and Emily Pearlman
Every year over 65,000 people gather in the desert outside of Reno, Nevada to create a massive experiment in temporary community called Burning Man. For one week the participants become citizens of Black Rock City, an impermanent metropolis with an airport, a money-less economy and hundreds of huge, interactive art installations in the moon-like, barren landscape of a dried out lake bed.
A pilgrimage to the desert for an experience, a transformation and ultimately, a story; Burnt is an exploration of Burning Man, its participants, and its culture, based heavily on recordings of interviews, conversations, music, dust storms and chaos.
