Recognised as one of the leading acts in London’s alternative performance scene, sequin-clad satirical weirdos Bourgeois & Maurice write songs that stick in your head like bloodstains in your nice new carpet. Their world is a sexy, stomping, highly theatrical kaleidoscope of current affairs, moral confusion and slippery social commentary. Created by George Heyworth and Liv Morris in 2007, Bourgeois and Maurice have created eight music theatre shows — including Guardian ‘must-see comedy event of 2017’ How to Save The World Without Really Trying — and performed at venues including the Royal Opera House, Southbank Centre and Sadler’s Wells. They have released four studio albums, been commissioned by BBC Radio 3, Birmingham Rep and Theatre503, and created an award-winning virtual reality music video. Their first main-stage theatre commission is set to premiere in Spring 2020 at HOME Manchester and will see them joined by a wider cast for a gothic, sci-fi musical, based on the ancient Sumerian poem The Epic of Gilgamesh.
