Burnt Out weaves spoken word and movement in a piece that is both an intimate personal story and a universal meditation and reflection on our changing climate. Penny Chivas work reflects on the devastating experiences of those who were impacted by the Australian bush fires in 2019/2020, otherwise known as the 'Black Summer'. With unavoidable political undertones, when tackling the subject of the climate, Burnt Out depicts the physical and emotional impact ‘Black Summer’ had on the people of Australia. Her performance exhibits a powerful portrayal of how performance can claim it’s space within climate activism.
