Curatorial Projects, Programme Partnerships and Screening Programmes: 2016

LADA works on its own curatorial projects, on programming partnerships with other organisations, and curates screening programmes for a range of events and festivals.

Please contact LADA if you would like to discuss a programme partnership or hosting a screening programme.

2016 curatorial projects:

LADA’s curatorial projects vary in scale and theme and are approached as strategic interventions to raise the profile of Live Art within a diversity of contexts and its role in exploring a range of political, social and cultural issues.

2016 screening programmes:

LADA curates screening programmes for a range of events and festivals in the UK and internationally. Drawing on materials from LADA’s Study Room, screening programmes are developed in dialogue with project partners and are either themed around specific issues, such as the performance of gender (Girls on Film), pain and performance (Ouch), the body in performance (Bodily Functions), or focus on Live Art histories and representations of the diversity of Live Art practices and approaches in the UK (Live Art &…).
