Culture Night 2016
Spoken Word & Live Performance Art Evening
LIVESTOCK is an bi-monthly performance art platform for both emerging and established performance artists.
LIVESTOCK is here to support and draw attention to Dublin and Ireland’s community of live performance artists and practitioners. Our aim is to foster discourse, practice-based exchanges and interactions between performance art makers and new audiences.Founded by artists Louise Ward, Joan Healy and Francis Fay, LIVESTOCK was originally based in and supported by the Market Studios, and has since moved to a number of different locations across the city, including MART Gallery and Studios in Rathmines.
Today, the platform is run by Eleanor Lawler and Francis Fay, who provide opportunities for and facilitate emerging and established artists, and promote live art to audiences. They are based in The Complex Theatre and Studios in Smithfield.
The third *Just Words* poetry evening will be held as part of Culture Night events in MART Gallery, Rathmines, Dublin. Just Words is a concept of volcanic revolutionary poetry, beat and jazz saxophones, wonderful performers: from spoken word artists to hip hop musicians; beat poets, guests from around the world, new authors with great visions and naked/raw writing and performing talents, short film projections, all together under the roof of fantastic MART Gallery and with help and hard work from MART Collective.
