£9.50 (Standard) | £6 (Concession) | £5 Local Links

An urgent and timely dance-theatre work, BURNT OUT encapsulates one Australian's experience of the devastating bushfires and the personal experience of the daughter of an environmental geochemist. 

Weaving spoken word, movement and a lump of coal, BURNT OUT takes us on a journey and ask the question ‘why do we feel we are unable to acknowledge the changes around us even when surrounded by thick smoke?’ 

An intimate personal story and a universal meditation, BURNT OUT is a reflection on our changing climate. 

The show is BSL interpreted and there is a post show Q&A session with Penny and artist Sapna Agarwal.

Original music from Paul Michael Henry interwoven with lighting from Great Snakes.
