‘Burnt Out’ is a solo dance theatre work centred around our changing climate. Weaving spoken word and movement we are taken on a journey through past bushfires including Penny’s own experiences, through their ignition and devastation, and left with space to ponder how we got here. Embedded in its soundscape are sounds from Black Summer – of magpies that have learnt to mimic emergency sires, of the shark sirens used to draw attention to the fire blackened skies, and of helicopters circling overhead. Original music from Paul Michael Henry interwoven with the stark lighting of Great Snakes. Bringing together both past and future, fact and personal lived account, ‘Burnt Out’ is at once an intimate personal story and a universal meditation and reflection on our changing climate. Post-show Q&A with Penny. Penny will reflect on the context for the work including performing the work during COP26 and in Australia before opening out to audience questions. ‘★★★★’ – The Stage ‘★★★★’- British Theatre Guide BSL-interpreted. AGE GUIDANCE: Suggested ages 12+ Contains Siren-like sound
