NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR CAT

And she's a cat.
In this age of increasingly novel and addictive social technologies we are more networked than ever, yet we've neverfelt more alone. Constantly engaged in curating the exhibition of the self, we are accused of being self-absorbed, anti-social and narcissistic. But is it the medium, or is it us?
In this bold and playful new work, emerging artists from Tantrum Youth Arts teamed up with Paper Cut to ask difficult questions and explore searingly honest narratives of our digital social lives.
This unmissable new work blends found text, movement and intermedial performance with absurdism and dark humour – and introduces you to some very cute cats.
