Liv Fontaine & Emily Pope: THE MUSICAL
Wednesday 11 July, 6 – 8pm
Free & open to all
Emily and Liv are both artists who celebrate the history of feminist performance within their work; exploring the comic (Emily) and the hysteric (Liv) as positions to subvert and repurpose. In short – they are obsessed with monologues. In this event for Bloc Projects, they will both present new musical works, followed by a Q&A with the audience
