The Burdened

Knot Theatre

Burden takes its first breath. A struggle. A fight between Burden and the woman it inhabits.

We find ourselves journeying through 1916, WW1. A woman becomes a nurse. She is proud, patriotic, and ready to serve her country. She is posted by the front lines ready to heal those brave men, to keep strong and do her part but even with the strongest of people, war will take its toll. The weight of what she sees haunts her closed eyes and gives way to a creature starting to form. Her hands seize from the strain, she is batter and bruised, she is not on the front lines but she is not safe… And now Burden is awake.

The Burdened is a non-verbal physical theatre show that explores the effects and weight of those who carry an immense burden. Using a combination of tap dance and physical theatre, this show creates its atmosphere through rhythms and manipulation of light and body to bring to life and personify the feeling of burden itself. Burden becomes a character, surreal and in conflict with the woman it lives inside.
