Rising star of the spoken word scene, Polarbear premieres his first full-length one-man show - If I Cover My Nose You Can't See Me. It fuses live artwork and visuals in a unique event, and will take over The Front Room after the show. Polarbear's poetry tells a 21st century story of a 28-year-old man stuck in a dead end job; and an 11-year-old boy looking for answers. What happens when things change and what do we do in response?
