I’m messy. Always have been.
Scattered ideas. Scribbled thoughts.
My ideas aren’t neat.
My ideas laugh and argue.
They shout and fight.
At school this held me back.
Now it’s how I get to fly.
What happens when you take a risk? How wrong can it go?
A new storytelling performance from Polarbear about how the chances we’re scared to make can come back to haunt us. And even maybe hunt us.
On the back of his international hit Mouth Open Story Jump Out, Dark Corners follows a 13 year-old Polarbear over one fateful 24 hours as a risky decision leads him to a showdown with his future selves.
Set on a pristine set of white paper, the audience helps shape the fate of our young hero as things start to get messy and we learn how following our hearts is often the messiest story of all.
Polarbear AKA Steven Camden is one of the UK’s most respected spoken word artist and acclaimed young adult author of Tape and It's About Love.
Written and performed by Polarbear. Dramaturgy by Yael Shavit. Designed by Bethany Wells. Co-produced by Theatr lolo.
