Thick Skin, Elastic Heart

About Thick Skin, Elastic Heart

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

Featuring a special support slot from a Glasgow poet.

Presented by Sonnet Youth and Company Many, in association with Platform, Theatre Royal Dumfries and D&G Arts Live.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Thick Skin, Elastic Heart are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
