The Kazimier nightclub and music venue, (Based in the centre of Liverpool's Wholstenholme Square) had a cult following on the underground creative scene in Liverpool from 2007 until its demolition in 2016.
The Kazimier was formed in 2007, staging night-time parties in their Liverpool city centre base. Fusing elements of clubbing, theatre, experimental performance and fine art, the aim was to create a new form of ceremony- ritual experiences that would lead audiences through euphoric and psychedelic states using a mixture of art, technology, costume and performance.
The Venue was host to a multitude of touring bands on an international scale, and a variety of theatre productions and other cultural happenings amidst a vast network of collaborators.
