Live Feed In-Process - Last Audience


Last Audience is the newest work by the Bessie-award-winning collaborative group, a canary torsi. It is an immersive performance installation where audience members incarnate the work at each performance. The piece utilizes the structure of a traditional requiem mass as the inspiration to develop scores for the audience. Greetings, processions, and requests for mercy, peace and liberation are the taking-off point for scores involving movement, environment and sound. Imagined as a ritual enacted specifically and uniquely with and for each audience, Castro sees Last Audience as a live laboratory for the work of conjuring.

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.
