About

A hybrid poetic theatre production, showcasing a kaleidoscope of diverse UK voices, played out like a frenzied scroll through a social media feed, with seemingly disconnected pieces, woven together with athletic, physical delivery.

The piece presents a collection of contemporary spoken-word monologues and group poems, giving voice to a generation, frequently reduced to a sound-bite in mass media - ineffectual, lazy, oversensitive “snowflakes”.

Featuring a special support slot from an Edinburgh poet.
