Luna Park’s tagline is “Live Arts & Events.” We mix up fringe art sensibilities with high-level production values, and vice versa. I suppose this is what had me climbing a 20-foot scaffold last week to create a moment at an event at Seattle University.
But back to the theory: ”Live Art” is a formal term used in the U.K. for a certain approach to the performing arts. Check this out from London’s Live Art Development Agency:
“The term Live Art is not a description of an artform or discipline, but a cultural strategy to include experimental processes and experiential practices that might otherwise be excluded from established curatorial, cultural and critical frameworks.”
And so Luna Park presents things like SLUG, or “Fringe the Puyallup!,” co-produces The Lost Picture Show, and brings some “wow” and “aha” to events from our corporate clients.
