A dynamic platform featuring new and recent works by Live Arts resident commissioned artists and curated guests, Live Artery provides a space for artists to network and share their work with the general public and presenters from around the world alike, which leads to commissions, tours and the building of long-term relationships.
In direct response to this call and the greater performing arts ecosystem’s loss of festivals, residencies and funding, the 2024 Live Artery will expand and include for the first time co-presentations with partner Under the Radar, and off-site performances at The Chocolate Factory, Gibney and Collapsable Hole. As the annual start to the spring season, the festival will proudly present 18 events over the course of 12 days, supporting 26 lead artists and their works. Live Artery will feature evening length works from Faye Driscoll, Lisa Fagan & Lena Engelstein, Roderick George, Dynasty Handbag, Albert Ibokwe Khoza, Molly Lieber and Eleanor Smith, and Juliana May.
