LIFE: LIVE!

Lucy McCormick


Part of Going Global

Our building is now temporarily closed to the public and performances in the Going Global season are no longer going ahead. 

We will open our doors again as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we're finding ways to support the incredible artists and communities that work with us. We're confident that by working together, we'll come out of this  stronger and more connected than ever.

A subversive, immersive, pop concert spectacular imagined by nu-pop sensation Lucy McCormick, and her electrotrash Girl Squad. 

Featuring shonky-spectacular, stadium-chic live visuals created with artist Morven Mulgrew, and an album of original music, Life: LIVE! straddles stardom, self-care and redemption in a hilarious, crumbling, musical extravaganza.

Running Time: 60 mins
Age Guidance: 14+

Please note this show is standing. Limited seating is available for those who need it.

Co-Commissioned by Fierce, Teatro do Bairro Alto and Cambridge Junction with support from Alkantara, Tramway, Civic House Glasgow and Battersea Arts Centre with funding from Arts Council England.

 

‘Lucy McCormick has the moves of Beyoncé, the lungs of Christina Aguilera and the morals of a punk iconoclast. As a comedian she is fearless. As a performer she is reckless. She is one of the most extraordinary and extreme performers around.’
The Scotsman

‘a balls-to-the-wall skewering of the misogyny and exploitation that underpin popular culture. While McCormick moves and sings like the most glamorous of arena-filling pop princesses, her shonky-spectacular aesthetic is anything but: it is cold, wet and even humiliating. But it’s all on her terms. This is no easy, ironic parody: it is extreme and often looks dangerous. Her fearless commitment to this contradiction is what makes McCormick’s performances so thrilling.’
The Guardian
