“Burner: Tales from the Playa”

“Burner: Tales from the Playa” is a one-man show written and performed by Tony Edwards, who goes by the “playa name” of OhTony.

It is the true story of a six-time “Burner” and chronicles the joy, heartbreak, amazement and life lessons learned at Burning Man, the annual festival which takes place on Black Rock Lake, a remote, dry lake bed in Northern Nevada, loving known to Burners as “the playa”.

“Burner” is a multi-media production, featuring images, video and sound captured at Burning Man. It is directed by Jerry Diner.

This is a video of the performance which took place on February 2, 2008 at Abundant Sugar in Los Angeles.

“And so, I present to you, “Burner: Tales from the Playa”. I invite you to watch it and share it with your friends. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed it’s creation. Much love to all of my dusty friends who supported me in this labor of love.
