Live Collision International Festival returns in 2022
Celebrating liveness; embracing the proximity of live performance and inviting audiences to share space, time and environment. Together we’ll explore formal and informal spaces while the festival programme asks us to gather around ideas, provocations and imaginations. LCIF2022 artists and artworks excavate with urgency topics such as class, race, rhetoric, migration, mental health, feminism, identity, gender, sexuality, access, equality and displacement. We invite you to bask in the meditative chant of live performance, to contemplate, to escape, to lose yourself and to uplift your heart in a frenzy of shared festival experiences.
Live Collision International Festival is an annual curated festival of Live Art presenting some of the most groundbreaking artists of our time, alongside new voices and the next generation of makers from Europe, the UK and Ireland with exceptional work across performance and digital platforms.
Expect to find a series of LIVE PERFORMANCE, multiple DIGITAL EDITIONS & INNOVATIONS crossing over with live performance, BRAND NEW WORK (artists talks, salons & post-show discussions) ARTIST IN RESIDENCE plus WHY LIVE ART, WHY NOW? and HOUSE OF ORIGIN (a body of research and website), cutting edge technology across our OFF-SITE work plus IRELAND’S LEADING CONTEMPORARY THEATRE COMPANIES at the centre of the festival and one exceptional opportunity to EXPERIENCE LIVE electronic music in intimate proximity…and so much more.
