WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Skimstone Arts presents, “What’s the difference” a Reality Boots gig showcasing hard-hitting songs exploring some of the issues faced by young people today. Fresh from their Park Lives tour, they will be debuting new compositions including one specially written and inspired by the idea of philanthropy and what it means.
We are delighted to say we will be joined by a group young people taking part in Young Writers’ City a project by New Writing North. Participants will present a dynamic performance of songs, raps and spoken word they have created through the project. They will also talk about the artistic and wellbeing benefits of taking part.

My home, my castle, my container, my prison?
How do we imagine the future of where and how we live? Who will we live with? What can we afford? What will our lives look like and how will we manage? This sensitive, humorous and moving performance, with original songs and live soundscapes, explores:
Behind our doorbells and front doors, how are we dreaming of the future?
Doorbells: Dreaming for the Future is a humorous, poignant and reflective theatre show about the wonderful world of imaginative and surreal lands that enable survival of being alone, and where magical journeys unfold to transport us beyond the everyday.
Doorbells: Dreaming for the Future has been commissioned by Care & Repair England and Elders Council of Newcastle, supported by Northumbria University.
