Live Feed In-Process: Last Audience
Last Audience is a piece made with the audience. It grapples with questions of agency, manipulation and the complexity of choice inside a theatrical context. It utilizes, twists, and re-forms language from requiem masses on Last Judgement and from the Greek Tragedies of Aeschylus on democratic formation. Enacted specifically and uniquely with and by each audience, Castro sees Last Audience as a live laboratory for the communal work of conjuring.
Last Audience is created and performed in collaboration with Yanira Castro, Kathy Couch, devynn emory, Stephan Moore, and David Thomson.
At the request of the artist, the April 26th studio showing of Last Audience will be filmed and photographed. Due to the participatory nature of Last Audience, we will not be offering alternative seating to those who do not wish to be recorded. By purchasing tickets and entering the space, you consent to being filmed. Documentation will be used at the discretion of the artist.
The Live Feed creative residency program is a laboratory for the development of new commissioned work directed toward our theater. This informal workshop showing offers a sneak peek into the artist’s process and ideas before they hit our stage. Taking place within the intimate working space of the Live Arts studio, each showing is followed by a discussion with the artist moderated by special guests and Live Arts staff.
The Live Feed program is supported in part by by Rockefeller Brothers Fund, National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Partners for New Performance.
