LOVE THE LIFE YOU LIVE, LIVE THE LIFE YOU LOVE

LOVE THE LIFE YOU LIVE, LIVE THE LIFE YOU LOVE

Maz a 24 year old dual heritage Queer window dresser, is a larger than life, troubled, vain, Helsinki-Bar Clubber.  During an alcohol & drug fueled night out in the St Georges quarter, he fatefully meets a rather strange eccentric manů.

This seemingly random but disturbing encounter,  changes them both in unforeseen ways forever ...

Performed with live choral music and choreography from Kwesi Johnson we plan to transport you back to 1980s Leicester,
and to the First World War - exploring Race, Class , Gender and
Queer identity...History and our place within it.

The Siobhan Logan Award-winning script is the second choreopoem in Carol Leeming's trilogy. It was originally commissioned by the Centre for New Writing at the University of Leicester and is published in the Hidden Stories anthology. We first meet the character Maz in The Loneliness of the Long Distance Diva(Curve, 2012)
