Live Feed In-Process: Last Audience
Last Audience is a piece made with the audience. It grapples with questions of agency, manipulation and the complexity of choice inside a theatrical context. It utilizes, twists, and re-forms language from requiem masses on Last Judgement and from the Greek Tragedies of Aeschylus on democratic formation. Enacted specifically and uniquely with and by each audience, Castro sees Last Audience as a live laboratory for the communal work of conjuring.
The Live Feed creative residency program is a laboratory for the development of new commissioned work directed toward our theater. This informal workshop showing offers a sneak peek into the artist’s process and ideas before they hit our stage. Taking place within the intimate working space of the Live Arts studio, each showing is followed by a discussion with the artist moderated by special guests and Live Arts staff.
The Live Feed program is supported in part by by Rockefeller Brothers Fund, National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Partners for New Performance.
