Livia Rita: Kissing Futures

Contact: Kate Burgess (Email)

Avantgardeners Collective Livia Rita

Join us and reach for utopia!

Be transported to a synthesiser-drenched world through Livia Rita’s FUGA FUTURA, performed with the Avantgardeners Collective. A gang of dancing witches will fill Old E with Livia’s wearable art to lush sounds from the band. Livia’s music collides into a furious, dreamy and tantalising live show; a surreal 4D music video immersing us in her post-human utopia of future feminism and abundant queer ecology.

Kissing Futures is a night set out to question the possibilities for the times to come. The evening will feature inter-disciplinary support from Bristol-based artists and activists. We will platform brave young voices, letting them share their dreams and aspirations for the future. Together we will forge speculative new worlds as night falls, and write hope into the future!

Developed under the mentorship of Lindsay Kemp (David Bowie) and Lea Anderson at the Barbican, Livia’s universe has been described as “Bjork on 3 tabs of LSD.” For fans of Yves Tumor, James Blake, and The Knife.

Doors @ 7.00 PM, Show @ 8:00 PM
