Content warnings

A content warning is a verbal or written warning that something contains content that may cause a strong negative emotional response or which a person might find distressing. The aim of content warnings is to allow the reader or audience to make an informed choice on what they would like to see.

Using content warnings allows people to prepare themselves adequately or to choose to enjoy something else.

Content warnings can be used on social media, articles, radio, podcasts, books or in this case for shows or live performances. Content warnings do not necessarily mean that the subject or content is explored in great depth, they are still used be on topics that are touched upon or mentioned in passing.

Below is a list of all content warnings that we are aware of, for upcoming shows.
