A curated selection of Short Reads available to all.
In 2019, Live Art Development Agency (LADA) celebrates their 20th anniversary. A curated selection of work from the LADA Study Room will once again tour to Live Collision, representing topics such as feminism, sexuality, disability and race in relation to Live Art practices. This year we will host a selection of short reads from the Study Room to celebrate the evolution of Live Art and to mark LADA’s 20th anniversary and Live Collision’s 10th festival edition – with particular focus on issues of race, migration and displacement.
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
