Get a sneak peek on NEPR’s “Live Art Magazine” podcast highlighting our feature performers and their artistic process.
Watch and listen as local and regional artists, musicians, writers, dancers, risk-takers and other creatives reveal unseen new work and works-in-progress. The evening unfolds within the structure of a magazine. Each issue engages the audience with a selection of readings (poetry, fiction, essay), performances (music, dance, theater), photography, and film. A series of short pieces begin the evening, and set a rolling pace. Longer features follow and dig deeper. The final works bring closure and prep us to hit local establishments with fellow art community members.
Issue 1 premiered on November 1 2013. The lineup included poet James Tate, Gary Bernice & the Springfield Sci-Tech Band, artist Wendy Woodson, Matthew Glassman of Double Edge Theatre, photographer Eric Gottesman, local bands Bella’s Bartok and Potty Mouth, writer Nell Lake and many, many more. See the complete line up here.
It was a one-night-only live performance event. Recording, filming and photography were not allowed, as the event strives to create a unique experience that is ephemeral (and protects works-in-progress from documentation). Live Art happens once for the people in the room.
ISSUE 2 was held on October 24 2014.
