A new performance by Liv Wynter and The Choir


This new live performance piece sees artist and activist Liv Wynter exploring the fury and rage that stems from the policing of bodies, and assumptions about trans and queer safety. Exploring how we navigate through a world where solidarity and radical organising are swallowed up by capitalism, the event will feature music from The Specials, Brechtian theatre and a live choir – expect the unexpected!
