Beautiful Burnout hits stateside
2010 EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE FIRST AWARD WINNER!
You don’t have to be a boxing fan to fall in love with Beautiful Burnout, the newest production from the National Theatre of Scotland and Frantic Assembly, landing at St. Ann’s Warehouse, NY, USA this week. Whether you’re a lover or a fighter, or both, this production is another powerful theatrical achievement from the company (NTS) and choreographer (Steven Hoggett) who gave us Black Watch. Watching the show is like watching a real fight dangerous, at close range and very personal.
Set in a Glasgow boxing ring, with a powerful soundscape by Underworld, Beautiful Burnout is a stunning immersion in the visceral world of boxing that surely, is the closest that dance-drama will ever come to the contact sport itself. (The Independent)
