WHY LIVE ART, WHY NOW? is an exploratory conversation looking at the role Live Art practice and ‘festival’ has to play in initiating and supporting a dialogue (performative or linguistic) around the social, cultural and political context and environment. What space does risk based practice provide that is particular and vital.
