Lisa Gornick's Live Drawing Show

Lisa Gornick's Live Drawing Show

  • Sun 8 Feb, 7.30pm
  • £10

An intimate comedy storytelling show using live drawing, performed and drawn by Lisa Gornick and directed by Lucy Lumsden.

This one hour show is about Grandma Ray: a east end cockney who sometimes went posh and who lived her life holding onto a secret.

Once discovered, this very same secret, helps her granddaughter to live her life with an enlightened flourish.

The set up is like an artist’s room meets cinema: music, ink, and lots of drawing – a one woman show with projected image and amplified voice – it’s art meets filmmaking meets comedy storytelling.

The live drawing leads us through the story as truths and details are revealed in real time.

Watch as the drawings unfurl and we are taken on a journey mapping both the past story of a grandmother and the parallel experiences of her granddaughter.

Lisa Gornick is that very granddaughter, finding out more about herself through drawing what she finds out about her grandma. What it was like to be a woman in the early twentieth century compared to one in the early twenty first?
