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, Scotlands 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 Citys 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 Watch, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and featuring the music of Anna Meredith (Mercury Prize nominated for Fibs).
A touch tour for this production is available before the 8pm performance on 10 August.
