    LIFT and the Young Vic announce our first LIFT 2020 show, The Second Woman

    Date: 29 May, 2019

    With just over a year to go until our next festival, we’re beyond excited to reveal an absolute trailblazer of a show, in a co-production with the Young Vic. The Second Woman by Australia’s Nat Randall and Anna Breckon is an internationally-acclaimed 24-hour feat of endurance performance and live cinema and we can’t wait to bring it to London.

    Created by an all-female-identifying and non-binary team who capture and mix the action live from multiple cameras, The Second Woman is a brilliant, binge-worthy spectacle, inspired by the 1977 John Cassavetes film Opening Night.
