NEW SHORTS: IRL

18:30 Wed 16 Jan 2019

When did we disconnect? How do we reconnect? (And do we even want to?) We’re a generation trapped in uncomfortable places yet finding empowerment in taking up space. Reality proves anxiety-inducing and mundane in equal measure and these shorts highlight both the good and the bad sides of millennial connection, online and off. With cameos from Liv Wynter, Kate Nash and Brigitte Aphrodite. Programmed by Jenny Clarke. 92’
