Caught in the middle

I have never witnessed an audience quite like the one present the night I got all dolled up for The High Low Experience. It wasn't until we were seated and I turned to absorb the crowd behind me that I realised the Barbican Centre had been swamped by Millennials. Aside from personal individualities, cultures and [...]
