Edinburgh International Festival event

Burn – Alan Cumming

(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)

Alan Cumming returns to the International Festival with a performance exploring the true character of Scotland’s national bard Robert Burns.

This world premiere dance-theatre show challenges the ‘biscuit tin’ image of Robert Burns, 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.

A co-production between Edinburgh International Festival, the National Theatre of Scotland, and New York City’s The Joyce Theater, Burn is a new creation from the legendary Scottish actor, author and International Festival favourite Alan Cumming and the Olivier Award-winning choreographer Steven Hoggett (Black WatchHarry Potter and the Cursed Child) and featuring the music of Anna Meredith (Mercury Prize nominated for Fibs).
