Art Review: Burns Unbroke, Summerhall, Edinburgh

The more closely you look at Robert Burns, the more he seems to shift and fragment before your eyes. Ploughman dreamer or highly literate wordsmith? Tax man or socialist? A philanderer who penned some of the most beautiful love poems ever written? His image has become instantly recognisable all over the world, but the handful

Burns Unbroke Review: Summerhall, Edinburgh

Here’s a question. Is there anything new to be said about Robert Burns? On the evidence of this show, the answer is a definitive yes. Rather like his earlier English counterpart, Shakespeare, the Bard is a man (or as portrayed here, a woman) for all seasons, and very contemporary.

Cabaret Preview: Kevin Williamson on an 'All-snarling, all-dancing' tribute to Burns

It’s that time of year when the supermarket shelves are groaning with haggis and writers are forever trying to find a new angle on Scotland’s national Bard. Given last year’s long overdue uprising of women against sex pests and patriarchy I dare say some bright sparks will set their sights on Rabbie this month given
