New York Live Arts’ dynamic platform of new and recent works by resident commissioned artists and curated guests. Presented during the annual Association of Performing Arts Professionals conference, Live Artery featured excerpts of recently premiered works and work-in-progress presentations.
The 2021 edition of Live Artery, a platform for new and recent works by New York Live Arts’ commissioned artists and curated guests, is presented in part in a dynamic 3D environment where artists can share their work and network with presenters and guests. Each day concludes with a Primetime screening of recent performances commissioned by New York Live Arts and open to the public. Live Artery provides an opportunity to bring to the forefront the vitality of today’s dance and performing arts community as they reinvigorate and reimagine the future of live arts and touring.
In the last few years, before the world went on pause, Live Artery has grown to become an important destination during the annual Association of Performing Arts Professionals Conference, creating a space for American artists to share their work with presenters that have led to engagements and commissions here and abroad. The roster of artists have included Kyle Abraham, Jack Ferver, Marjani Forté, Joanna Kotze, Molly Lieber and Eleanor Smith, Okwui Okpokwasili, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, and many more.
And the artists kept going.
Live Artery celebrates the beginning of a new year (and we have earned this one), a symbol of renewal and hope. It is also a testament to the resilience of artists and their indefatigable courage and ability to imagine a future when there seemed to be none.
