Festival of Live Art 2014
This behemoth of a thing is bustling with new and exciting work that closes the increasingly ambiguous gap between art and theatre. And with a run-time of over two weeks in locations all over the city, it's safe to say it's way more hardcore than White Night.
Good things are coming in big packages these days. White Night devoured the CBD whole last month, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is right around the corner, and in the meantime we've been offered up the very first Festival of Live Art — a behemoth of a thing bustling with new and exciting work that closes the increasingly ambiguous gap between art and theatre.
In a joint venture between Arts House, Theatre Works and Footscray Community Arts Centre, the festival will take place at multiple venues over the two-week period, and better yet: most events are free. Take a look at the program and plan your full experience, or drift in and out of our top ten picks. If you're up for a challenge, get stuck into the whole list — a decathlon of sorts (for us artsy types).
The Festival of Live Art runs from March 14 - 30. For more information including session times and ticketing, check the website.
