Making Routes: Journeys in Live Art
by David Overend
This Study Room Guide is concerned with journeys as an emerging trend in Live Art.
A significant number of artists, practitioners and companies are currently incorporating travel into their work and using journeys in a variety of different ways. These include Wrights & Sites and its individual members, Lone Twin, Forced Entertainment, Nic Green, Kieran Hurley and Pointed Arrow. There are many more, but in this short list an apparent contradiction begins to emerge: a Western (more specifically British) focus on practices with an inherently global outlook. This Guide is therefore interested in roots as well as routes; acknowledging the geographical, cultural and political context from which these ideas and practices develop.
The Guide can be read below, is available to view in our Study Room, or can be downloaded as a pdf.
