In Time is a collection of ten case studies designed to reflect the innovative and pioneering ways in which Live Art has responded to many of the exciting cultural challenges of our times, and to act as a resource for artists, promoters and others working in the sector.
Each case study was directed by members of Live Art UK, using either their own work or the work of others as its focus. The case studies are complemented by contextualising essays from cultural commentator Sonya Dyer and critic Lyn Gardner.
Live Art has, by desire or necessity, developed demonstrably different approaches to issues such as Critical Writing, Professional Development, Archiving and Audiences, and these approaches are proving to be influential, or have the potential to be influential, across a range of cultural sectors. Each case study focuses on one key issue, and in combination these documents reflect a dynamic set of inter-related successes, challenges, and opportunities.
Live Art UK is a consortium of venues, promoters and facilitators who collectively represent a range of practices and are concerned with all aspects of the development and promotion of the Live Art sector.
