LIVE COLLISION INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL presents some of the most daring and beautiful work of our time, and is Ireland’s leading curatorial model of live art. The festival presents artists of exceptional calibre – from seminal international artists who have been making groundbreaking work across the globe to Ireland’s most exciting next-generation of performance makers – all with work never before presented in Ireland.

The festival programme is interdisciplinary and intergenerational with a desire to engage audiences and artists into closer proximity around urgent and vital subject matters, provocations and experiences. Expect to find a series of DOUBLE BILLS (festival bundle offers), BITE SIZE SCRATCH (a platform for new works), WHY LIVE ART, WHY NOW? (salons, post-show discussions, artist workshops & podcast) plus BIBLIOTHEQUE // LADA STUDY ROOM (a rare archive representing topics such as feminism, sexuality, disability and race in relation to Live Art practices), TLAS@LCIF (a salon of work co-curated by the Trans Live Art Salon & Collective) and two EXPLOSIVE festival parties…and so much more….
