Live Artery: A Living Documentary (work-in-progress)

Presenters RSVP Here.

A Living Documentary is a comedic, no-nonsense reflection on the trials and tribulations of earning a living as a professional theater artist in the 21st century. Intertwining elements of musical comedy, autobiography, documentary and fiction, A Living Documentary intersperses live interviews with portrayals of semi-fictional comedic characters, all the while asking myriad questions about the realities of professional artistic life in New York City.

Live Artery is an annual event at New York Live Arts during the APAP conference, connecting dance and body-based artists, curators and presenters, Live Artery fuels a vibrant, nationwide network in support of compelling artists and ideas.

A Living Documentary is commissioned by New York Live Arts and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is given by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts. This work was developed, in part, through a residency at The Watermill Center, in partnership with New York Live Arts and Bunker (Slovenia) through the Suitcase Fund.
