Loki, the Scottish Rapper: Poverty Safari Live

  • The Stand's New Town Theatre Edinburgh (map)

Blending elements of music, comedy and spoken word to bring to life themes of social mobility, class and identity. An attempt to find a way across the ravine while still retaining your sanity. Loki AKA Darren McGarvey's bestselling 2017 book Poverty Safari: Understanding the Anger of Britain’s Underclass blended memoir, journalism and polemic to make an argument that even the left – as well as Conservatives – misunderstand the complexity of poverty as it is experienced and that many traditional ideas on both the left and right are dangerously outdated.
