The Live Feed creative residency program is a laboratory for the development of new commissioned work directed toward our theater. Informal public showings offer a sneak peek into each resident artist’s process and ideas before they hit our stage. Each showing takes place within the intimate working space of the Live Arts studio and is followed by a discussion with the artist moderated by special guests and Live Arts staff.

The 2016-18 Live Feed artists are Jack Ferver, Marjani Forte, Joanna Kotze, Paloma McGregor, Bebe Miller, Walter Dundervill, Preeti Vasudevan, and zoe | juniper.

The 2017-19 Live Feed artists are Kimberly Bartosik, Rashaad Newsome, Kaneza Schaal, Kota Yamazaki, and Netta Yerushalmy.
