Burnt Out – one Australian's experience of our changing climate. Weaving spoken word and movement, we are taken through Australia's fiery history including Penny's own experiences. Embedded in sound is the Australian Black Summer: magpies that have learnt to mimic emergency sirens, shark sirens and helicopters circling overhead. Original music by Paul Michael Henry interwoven with the dramatic lighting of Great Snakes. An autobiographical dance-theatre work from the daughter of an environmental geochemist, bringing together fact and personal account. Burnt Out is at once an intimate story and a universal meditation on climate change.
