A co-production between the National Theatre of Scotland, New York City’s The Joyce Theater and Edinburgh International Festival, Burn is a new creation from Scottish actor and author Alan Cumming and Olivier award-winning choreographer Steven Hoggett (Black Watch, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).
This new piece of dance theatre challenges the ‘biscuit tin’ image of Scotland’s National Bard and goes beyond the poetry to focus on the man himself: his poverty, his personal tragedy, his struggles with mental health and his spectacular success.
