Live Art Festival 2014

A few photographs of some of the events at this year's Live Art Festival. (Cellphone pictures though, and taken at night ...)
Some performances were provocative, some thought-provoking, some controversial, some beautiful, some powerful, some amazing, some fun, some scary, some plain weird. But there was not a single one I would not have wanted to see.

Tantalising photos! would have loved to have been at more performances. It is the endless possibilities that make live art so exciting for me: subject matter, the extent of interpretation, use of lighting, sound, dress, site. I love that it can be easily accessible and entertaining or very ambiguous and intensely personal with a myriad of variations in-between. It is the ultimate creative vehicle.
