A curated selection of work from the Live Art Development Agency (LADA)’s Study Room has toured to Live Collision each year, representing topics such as feminism, sexuality, disability and race in relation to Live Art practices. This year we will host a bibliotheque of titles from LADA’s Study Room touching on histories, archives, legacies, and feminism, curated by artist Lois Weaver (one half of Split Britches).
The Live Art Development Agency’s Study Room is one of the most (if not *the* most) important archives in the UK on experimental theatre, performance and Live Art. It has one of the best specialist book collections on these subjects and a fantastic array of DVDs stretching back over 40 years of artists’ innovative practices. It is a major and indispensable resource for artists, scholars, students and journalists and furnishes a vital space for research, considered curatorial decisions, writing and contemplation. – Adrian Heathfield, Professor of Performance and Visual Culture Roehampton University, London
