Trigger warnings. No platforming. Cultural appropriation.
In years gone by, the old criticised the young for being reckless and rude. Nowadays, the young – so-called ‘Generation Snowflake – stand accused of being over-sensitive and lacking resilience. Too quick to take – and too scared to give – offence. CPT’s new three-week festival Handle with Care takes this idea to task. Are we more sensitive to ‘micro-aggressions’ – or just less willing to tolerate them? Where does healthy self-assertion end – and entitlement begin?
Over three weeks, and headlined by Natasha Nixon and Marcelo dos Santos’s extraordinary new show Trigger Warning, the UK’s most exciting theatremakers strike out beyond their safe spaces to explore this brave (or should that be timid?) new world.
