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

2017 screening programmes:

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 &…).
