Bee says “I am delighed to have award winning and performance poet Liv Torc as my special guest on ‘From the Hive’ this month ahead of her hosting a Bruton Festival of Arts Event I am organising ‘Bruton Poetry Platform’ – At the Chapel – Bruton on 28th May 2016 and her performance alongside Hollie McNish at The Roundhouse in London in a gig entitled ‘Mum’s the Word’, on June 3rd.”
‘Liv Torc is a razor blade skating performance poet and comedian, who plunges the vast caverns and dormant volcanoes of the human condition, armed with a box of matches and a sense of lyrical wonder’.
Liv is an experienced and popular performer, compere and workshop leader, Liv was the South West winner of the last National Radio 4 Poetry Slam, the second ever Bard of Exeter and the poet in residence at Exeter’s first ever Poetry Festival. She is co-host of The Hip Yak Poetry Shack, performs nationally and internationally and runs a successful spoken word stage at WOMAD festival. Her first published collection ‘Show Me Life’ was released last June by Burning Eye Books.
