We are pleased to present the 14th edition of Live Action, one of Europe’s leading international performance art events. The first strand of this 14th edition will take place from June 6 to June 8 2019 showcasing 10 extraordinary artists from besides Sweden also Iran, France, USA, Spain, Finland, the United Kingdom, China, Poland and Palestine.
Like each year Live Action features an afternoon program Common Ground which takes place outdoors in the city centre of Gothenburg at Stadsbiblioteket and Brunnsparken. It is a manifestation of one of the founding pillars of the festival, the practical implementation of a cultural democracy.
Live Action’s evening program takes place at 3e Våningen with its friendly, open and exquisite black box and white box space. Entrance at Live Action is free, and has been so since our start in 2006.
This years curatorial theme is ”Freedom of Speech”, calling upon everyone to oppose hate speech wherever it comes from. To stand up and defend the values of democracy, freedom, equality, brotherhood, humanity, respect, tolerance and solidarity. Values that characterizes performance art and all artists invited to take part in Live Action 14.
