Liz Clarke is a live artist, facilitator and performer. Her work is primarily concerned with the Body as Site and Object; exploring its boundaries and vulnerabilities in performance. Practicing in the spaces between theatre, cabaret and live art she questions what happens when the genres’ unwritten rules are broken, merged, unclassified, exploited. Her work is strongly connected with representing the Female through alienation, intimacy and construction of mythical Hyperfeminine archetypes.
She has performed at the Arnolfini, Duckie, Roundhouse, Shunt, In Between Time, Mayfest, on stages, understairs, cars, in giant balloons & nightclubs UK wide. She is resident performer with ‘Beacons Icons & Dykons’ and runs the performance company Liz Clarke and Company (formerlly Drastic Productions). Her unique blend of socially engaged practice and exploratory devising processes encourages people to take supported risks through creating new work.
