Leanne Moden had developed her first full-length spoken word show, Skip Skip Skip, and it’s brilliant: an emotion inducing ride of teenage angst, belonging and identity. Combining poetry, storytelling, humour and movement, Skip Skip Skip is an honest, heartfelt performance that deserves to be seen.
“Now, I’m finally ready to take the whole thing up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. But I need your help!”
A performance poet for nearly a decade, Leanne developed this show from conversations with friends and colleagues about how music shapes our friendships, personalities and lives, especially during those tricky teenage years. She’s now been offered a slot at the PBH Free Fringe, performing at the Banshee Labyrinth, and will be there every day at 7pm, from the 17th to the 25th of August.

Leanne has been telling poems at events across the UK and Europe since 2010, including recent performances at TEDx WOMEN, WOMAD Festival, Sofar Sounds, Bestival on the Isle of Wight and the Fourth Wave Feminist Festival, as well as festivals in Estonia and Spain. She's been a national finalist at the BBC Edinburgh Fringe Slam, the Hammer and Tongue slam, Poetry Rivals, the Camden Roundhouse Slam, the Axis Slam, and the Anti-Slam. It would be great to se her shine in Edinburgh.
