LIVE DREAMS is a new series of curated events for our 2020 Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art, in which artists present their works-and-ideas-in-progress to test them with live audiences, receive feedback and discuss their next steps.
This year, the creative development of experimental work in familiar physical spaces - rehearsal rooms, studios, theatres, and via travel and residencies—has necessarily ceased. Performance Space is striving to support artists to continue creatively developing their work and honing their practice, often in inventive and resourceful new ways.
LIVE DREAMS will be presented at Carriageworks, and will be available to stream at LIVE ON-THE-LINE.
