Welcome to LIVE 2017, the tenth edition of Vancouver’s International biennial performance art celebration. During its history LIVE has presented provocative new art by hundreds of local, regional, national and international emerging, established and celebrated artists. Fundamental to LIVE is building a network between artists here and elsewhere, to bridge between new talent and established mentors, and to provide forum for the public.

LIVE 2017 is featuring contemporary performance art from here and around the world. Watch for international artists Raeda Saadeh (Palestine) , Stein Henningsen (Norway), Jorn J. Bermester (Germany). New emerging Japanese talents Maiko Jinushi and Nile Koetting. Local legend Margaret Dragu streaming live tabletop television, BEAT NATION artist, Jackson 2 Bear feature a new collaboration with Tanya Doody, Quebec super music duo, Genevieve et Matthieu, our favourite Daina Warren back in town with 3  Winnipeg, and many more, from across Canada. Daytime activities include ALIVE Emerging Artist Workshops by six different artists at Unit/Pitt Projects and LIVE Lunch Talks daily at Pat’s Pub. (Please see attached schedule)
