Discover the future of experimental art – from across the Asia Pacific – over three curated evenings of performance: DISTANCE, JESTER, and THRESHOLD. Now in its fourth season, LIVE DREAMS brings together artists and audiences in dynamic and responsive ways.
This innovative platform allows artists from across Australia and the Asia-Pacific to present ideas- and works-in-progress, so you can see the creative process in action. Get a glimpse into current developments in experimental art and engage in a conversation about their next steps.
