In 2010, the longest running festival of Live Art in the UK, the National Review of Live Art, celebrated its 30th festival. Live Art, a marginal activity in the 1970s, has become, by the twenty-first century, a recognised term that references a diverse range of well-supported processes and practices of performance making. Histories and Practices of Live Art is the first publication to map live art both historically and thematically, engaging with a number of key practices and asking what it is that they do and how they have been/can be contextualised and understood. Recognising that there is no single ‘history’ of live art, nor indeed a singular live art practice, this multi-authored book, written by leading academics and practitioners, embraces and introduces the diversities of practices, critiques, opinions and debates attached to the lively and expansive field ‘live art’.
