Multi-disciplinary artist and Guildhall tutor Paula Varjack curates and hosts a brand new series of conversations in collaboration with students from the School’s BA Performance and Creative Enterprise (PACE).
In this informal conversation, streamed via Instagram Live, Paula Varjack is joined by Liv Wynter who discusses their practice and shares advice, experience and ideas with the next generation.
Liv Wynter is a live artist, writer, and activist from SEL. Liv has been performing internationally since 2015, making live art that centres around radical action, community, rage, and power. With successful residencies at Project Indigo, Wysing, FACT (and a less successful one at Tate), as well as working with Free Word, the Hayward Gallery, Art Night, Hackney Museum, and even supporting Kate Nash a couple of times, Liv has gone on to cause chaos through both their personal practice and their commitment to antifascist, antisexist, and anticapitalist organising. Their work HOUSEFIRE, which told the story of how communities respond to domestic violence survivors, exhibited at WORM Rotterdam, Wysing Arts Centre and Centre Régional d’Art Contemporain Occitanie.
Their anarchist musical theatre debut, ‘And So The Choir Gathers, Before It is Too Late’ (ACE Funded), which focussed on the history of two tone and skinhead culture sold out over 5 nights at The Bunker Theatre Nov 2019. The work had a cast of untrained performers, a punk band, and a lot of whiskey. They are currently a refuge worker at The Outside Project, the UK’s only LGBTIQ+ homeless shelter, and a peer support coordinator at Hearts & Minds. Liv stands in solidarity with all groups organising against oppression.
