Lisa Luxx: The Polyphonic Scars Show

Tuesday, 14 March 2017 @ 6:00pm
As a kid of the net-generation, Lisa Luxx grew up online. But after a crazy anti-net road trip round the wild landscapes near Silicon Valley, she briefly sobered up from technology to realise her peers are in deeper than she thought.

The Polyphonic Scars show is made up of personal stories and poetry about addiction, evolution and direct experience.
That's all for now. Don't forget to book your FREE tickets to our Preview Event on 30 November.
