Sensitivity is messy. Embarrassing. Weak. History records the strong, the winners, the tough and the economy rewards them.
Yet, 20% of the population have inherited a gene meaning that they are highly sensitive. Hannah Jane Walker is a highly sensitive person. In this show she sets out to look at the usefulness of sensitivity as something available to us all.
Through stories, poems and interaction, Highly Sensitive asks if what we think of as weak is in fact resilience and whether – as we move into the future – we have greater untapped potential than we realised.
