This is not a survivor story; this is an everyday story about living in country where 1 in 4 people experience mental health difficulties, and where suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45. Chris promises you will laugh at least twice despite this.
In this work in progress solo show, ‘Rain Dance’, Chris Martin explores his own experiences of Mental Health through poems and storytelling.
Chris is a poet and performer based in the Midlands. He has won slams, spoken at festivals, and his often-irreverent work has been used in both GCSE textbooks and pub arguments.
““Chris’ work is fun, thoughtful, intelligent and reliably well crafted” – Jess Green
“ Chris is one of the most captivating and inventive poets I have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with. The spectrum of emotions he can take you through in one poem alone is staggering, and his energy is totally contagious” – Charley Genever.
