“Don’t worry about what you’re wearing, as long as what you’re wearing is black”
Leanne felt like she’d 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 combines poetry, storytelling, and humour to explore isolation, transformation and the ways we define ourselves.
Ages 16+. £5. In the Old Fire Station Studio.
This is a work in progress.
Tongue-in-cheek poetry with real heart. Leanne is an award-winning poet and educator delivering creative writing workshops, talks and performances across the East Midlands, the UK, and internationally. Leanne’s poetry is fast-paced, funny and sometimes a little bit rude. She loves using rhyme and rhythm to unpick the absurdity of every-day life, and Hollie McNish once called her “a treasure”.
