Performance Space’s LIVE DREAMS is a platform for artists to share works-in-progress and ideas in development in a dynamic and responsive environment.
LIVE DREAMS takes place both in-theatre at Carriageworks and digitally via our live streaming channel, Live On The Line. This platform offers us an exciting glimpse into current developments in experimental art, creating a crucible for experimentation and conversation.

The term distance can mean many things, from the literal – length, measurements, the space between two points – to the metaphorical – the ache of the growing gap between two lovers or the feeling of disconnection from ancestral homelands. The artists selected for this iteration of LIVE DREAMS explore distance through the lens of their own experiences, creating works that draw upon the ache of connections to place, people, language, identity and spirituality. Despite the physical and emotional hurdles that the past two years have forced upon us, the artists in this presentation explore distance as a driving force, as something that can create beauty just as much as heartache.
