About The Trauma Show

“Have you ever trauma dumped? TikTok tells me this show might do that but don’t worry we can just trauma bond” Demi is obsessed with trauma, childhood trauma, naming it, analysing it, healing from it, and getting-on-stage-to-perform-it. That last one might be a trauma response but you can decide that. Having entered her 30’s Demi expected to be more whole, more healed, to not still feel like a child. Because trauma lives in the body and the body keeps the score, and we all know what that means. Disclaimer: Demi doesn’t know what that means. The Trauma Show explores the impacts of adverse childhoods, making a show and dance out of it, mourning our little selves, ‘therapise’ culture and how TikTok can heal us all. All performances will be Relaxed. We invite you to make yourself comfortable and move around if you need to and if you need to leave the performance at any point you will be allowed to return to the space when you feel ready. Age Recommendation: 15+ This performance is Pay What You Can with a recommended price of £16 with tickets from £6. If anyone feels they need to pay under £6 please contact Box Office, on [email protected] or call 0207 223 2223. The Pay What You Can Scheme removes a financial barrier, giving everyone the chance to see our shows. This is made possible by those who are able choosing a higher price point, and for this you can be guided by the recommended price.
