Event description

Description

Join us at City Arts in Nottingham for a special double-bill of performances from two excellent spoken word poets, Leanne Moden and Chris Martin, who will be performing their full one-hour one-person shows, fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe! This is Leanne's only scheduled performance in Nottingham, so make sure you get your tickets as soon as you can!



RAIN DANCE – A BURNOUT STORY by Chris Martin

Not all breakdowns come from trauma.

In his first full length theatre piece, stand-up poet Chris Martin explores male mental health using poems, statistics, and his own experiences of burnout and anxiety. Spanning the party years before the financial crisis, new fatherhood during the recovery, and an incident involving a panda costume, Chris will take you on a journey which challenges your understanding of your own mental health, encouraging a more open approach to wellbeing. This show has been developed in collaboration with mental health practitioners, bar staff, and the kind of invulnerable young men who need to hear it most.



SKIP SKIP SKIP by Leanne Moden

Don’t worry about what you’re wearing, as long as what you’re wearing is black

Leanne Moden felt like she’d finally found her tribe when she accidentally became a teenage goth in rural Norfolk in 2002. But, can you base your entire identity on the music you listen to or the clothes you wear? In this vulnerable, honest and thought-provoking performance, Leanne explores isolation, personal transformations and the ways in which we define ourselves. Combining poetry, storytelling, humour and movement, Skip Skip Skip is a show about belonging, discovering your identity, and the lengths we all go to fit in.


There will be a pay-for bar at this event, and the event is open to over 18s only. Doors open at 7pm and the show begins at 7:30pm. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss specific access requirements, please contact Leanne at leanne.moden@gmail.com
