Presented by Performance Space and Carriageworks, Live Dreams: Reclaim brings together 6 dynamic works-in-progress by experimental artists from Sydney, Perth, Hong Kong, Canada and Northern NSW.

Collectively, these works reconstruct spaces and ideas that have been lost, dismantled or stolen, or that propose what should exist instead. Whether reclaiming language, decolonising cultural and power structures, or resetting our relationship with our bodies and the environment, this collection of performances and presentations explores how we can create a more equitable, joyful and sustainable world through the radical intervention of artists’ visions. 

From Jamaica Moana’s reclamation of Maori language and lineage to Shana O’Brien’s powerful invocation of her connection to ancestors and Country, several of the Live Dreams: Reclaim artists unravel colonial systems and assert new narratives of sovereignty and culture. weather beings continue this conversation by rematriating feminist and queer knowledge into contemporary Indigenous practice; while AñA Wojak, working with Cloudbeard, reclaims the power of the ageing trans body through the lens of their decades-long performance practice. Elsewhere, Too Close to the Sun take on themes of wildness and extinction, inviting us to rethink our relationship with the environment, and Elysa Wendi and Rhiannon Newton weave together choreography and multi-sensory storytelling to unpack their experiences as women shaped by the cultural contexts of South-East Asia and Australia.

This event is taking place at Carriageworks and live streaming online.

Bringing artists and audiences together in new, dynamic and responsive ways, Live Dreams is a series of curated performance events across 3 nights; Destroy, Reclaim, Revel.

This innovative platform allows the artists to present ideas- and works-in-progress, so you can see first hand into the creative process, getting a glimpse into current developments in experimental art, and engage in a conversation about their next steps.

Following the raved-about first season at Liveworks 2020, Performance Space and Carriageworks are thrilled to present LIVE DREAMS May 2021. Taking place both in physical space and online, come and get a glimpse at the future of experimental art from across the Asia Pacific.
