Liveworks 2020

Date: 11 Oct 2020

Exploring some of the most challenging issues of our complex times, Liveworks 2020 will be a reimagined festival in response to the uncertainty of the world around us.

Blending live performance and digital events, and staged in a socially-distanced setting, artists have been forced to think outside the box, this may be the most inventive, thought-provoking and boundary-pushing Liveworks to-date.

Running from October 21-25 at Carriageworks, Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art, the 2020 program has been re-configured to allow participants to celebrate the return of live performance and experience art in-person. Close to half of the program will also be devoted to online and digital gatherings to engage art-lovers from across Australia and around the world.

The 2020 festival program is divided into three streams: the first LIVE NOW comprises the full-scale experimental performance events and exhibitions which will be either presented live at Carriageworks or streamed live online.

The second two program streams will be presented both in-person at Carriageworks and streamed live online: LIVE FUTURES will feature exclusive panel discussions with a range of creatives diving into the important questions of the current time.

LIVE DREAMS will present artists’ works-in-progress and sketches of new ideas to allow audiences to hear directly from artists as they explore new directions for their work, offering the public a chance to play a part in the creative process.
