Livestock has teamed up with MART to present a year long residency in 2018.
Livestock was established in 2010 at The Market Studios in Dublin by Joan Healy, Louise Ward and Francis Fay. Livestock continues today with Francis Fay & Eleanor Lawler as co-curators.
Livestock is an artist-led initiative set up to support, encourage and promote performance, the artists and their work. The bi-monthly event is an opportunity for performers to show new or evolving work.
Central to their ethos is the creation of a positive and welcoming environment where artists can perform their live work to an appreciative audience. We believe performance facilitates a relationship between artist and audience, creating an intimacy and a space for dialogue between both parties.
Livestock has been part of Dublin Live Art Festival since 2012, exposing Irish performance artists’ work to International artists taking part in the Festival.
