at The Anatomy Rooms (Dissection Room) 


Weaving text with movement, we are taken through a fiery past layered with Black Summer’s sounds. As a dance-theatre work from the daughter of an environmental geochemist intertwining fact with personal account, Burnt Out stands as an intimate story and a universal meditation. One Australian’s experience of our changing climate.
