RUPTURE is an evening of live performance and music in three acts. Hosted by artist and activist Liv Wynter and featuring an outstanding line up of emerging artists, dancers, poets and musicians the programme draws on the themes of politics and class, activism and labour, and sexuality and gender to animate the historic nave of the Garden Museum with a sense of urgency and defiance.
The first act will focus on spoken word and poetry. The second act will feature DRAG and dance performances. The third and final act will conclude the evening with live music and DJ sets.
Liv Wynter (b. 1992, UK) is a queer artist, educator, activist and writer from South London. They use an anarchic exploration of language, live performance, and text based practice to create unique forms of storytelling and to initiate discussions around class, sexuality and gender. Though their work is socially and politically demanding it demonstrates a fluidity which allows them to move from art institutions to youth clubs, community centres and protests.

The Garden Museum, reopened in 2017, is Britain’s only museum of the art, history and design of gardens. It was founded by Rosemary Nicholson in 1977 to rescue the abandoned church of St Mary’s at Lambeth, which was due for demolition.The church is the burial place of John Tradescant, the first great gardener and plant-hunter in British history. It houses a permanent display of paintings, tools, ephemera and historic artefacts as well as temporary exhibitions, events and a garden. Please note: this venue has limited capacity; entry will be on a first come, first served basis.
