Liv Morris: Half of cabaret act Bourgeois & Maurice

Aug 29, 2019, 01:00 AM

Liv Morris is one half of the multi-award-winning cabaret duo Bourgeois & Maurice.

Liv Morris and her friend George Heyworth formed Bourgeois & Maurice on a bit of a whim back in 2007, and things have really escalated since. As a duo, they’ve released four studio albums, made a web series, a podcast, numerous theatre shows, and they’ve also won Time Out’s Alternative Eurovision competition twice. 

In the last twelve years Bourgeois & Maurice have performed around the world, and at prestigious London venues including the Royal Opera House, Southbank Centre and Sadler’s Wells. In 2017 they won the HOME Manchester T1 Commission prize, which sees them creating a new main stage show for the theatre premiering 2020.

I wanted to talk to Liv about what feels like a classic, and really fruitful relationship - between a straight woman and a gay man. About making art together, and what they both bring to the party. And about whether Liv having a baby (not with George!) has changed things.
