Complete festival schedule:

Low Lives is pleased to present Low Lives 4, the fourth installment in a series of annual international art events. Low Lives 4 will feature sixty live performance-based works over two days, each transmitted over the web and projected in real time at twenty-five venues worldwide.

Low Lives celebrates the transmission of ideas beyond geographical and cultural borders, offering global audiences the opportunity to consider live performance in both physical and virtual space.

“Over the past four years Low Lives has developed a platform that invites and enables artists, audiences, and presenting venues to ‘plug in and participate’ from anywhere an internet connection exists,” Low Lives Founding Director, Jorge Rojas, explains. “Low Lives is not simply about the presentation of performative gestures at a particular place and time, it is also about exploring the potential of live streaming networks as a creative medium connecting performance artists with audiences around the world.”

A live simulcast of the event will be streamed on April 27 and 28 at www.lowlives.net
