Performance Space’s LIVE DREAMS is a platform for artists to share works-in-progress and ideas in development in a dynamic and responsive environment. LIVE DREAMS takes place both in-theatre at Carriageworks and digitally via our live streaming channel, Live On The Line. This platform offers us an exciting glimpse into current developments in experimental art, creating a crucible for experimentation and conversation.
This June, Performance Space will hold a special edition of LIVE DREAMS, inviting artists to present works-in-progress that imagine radical futures. Our three guest curators—Talia Smith, Joel Bray and Victoria Spence—have themed each stream with a powerful forward-looking provocation, inviting us to interrogate the role of art in shaping and reshaping our collective future in an ever-shifting world. What agendas do we want to advance and how might art dispel myths, illuminate concerns or provoke radical visions?
General Public tickets on sale now.
There are three curated streams of LIVE DREAMS:
DISTANCE (9th June 2022)
Curated by Talia Smith
The distance between one point and another, between each other, between homes, between sadness and happiness. Works that explore notions of how distance keeps us apart but can also bring us together.
JESTER (10th June 2022)
Curated by Joel Bray
Honouring the ancient tradition of the court jester, speaking truth to power by acting the fool
THRESHOLD (11th June 2022)
Curated by Victoria Spence
Works that consider arrival, passing through and beginning anew. Works that meet the 'what if' and 'if only' questions that may bring us to the end of what we know.
