Life: Live! is 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.

Doors at 10pm with showtime at 10.30pm. Ticket includes free entry to Club Fierce party afterwards.   Created by Lucy McCormick, Performed by Lucy McCormick, Morven Mulgrew, Samir Kennedy & Lennie  Music by Lucy McCormick, Joe Reeves, Ted Rogers & Samir Kennedy, Set & Costume Morven Mulgrew, Music Producer Joe Reeves, Project Producer Karl Taylor

‘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

Fierce Says

SHE’S BACK! Our favourite UK performer! After the outrageous ‘Triple Threat’ that we presented with SHOUT Festival in 2018, we can’t wait to see this new Fierce commissioned show. Part theatre, part gig this is the perfect Saturday night out.

Gillie Kleiman & Greg Wohead
Familiar is a twinset of performances on significant otherness. One authored by Kleiman and performed by Wohead, the other authored by Wohead and performed by Kleiman, the two are twisted together with story, song and spit. Springboarding from a question of companionship, Kleiman and Wohead reach for something mysterious: a shaggy dog story danced by Twin Peaks’ legendary Log Lady, speaking from the beyond to enable the pair to become others of significance then and there in the theatre.

Fierce Says

Gillie and Greg are two of the most exciting young makers in the UK, so when they told us they wanted to make solos for each other we jumped at the chance. Expect a beautiful and quirky design by brilliant artist Tim Spooner too.
