‘Liverpool Live 06’ October 26-29

Time to get your diaries out again.

There’s about 40 short art events all in the space of three and a bit days next week. The FrenchMottershead event sounds like fun and Mat Fraser/Max Zadow’s Architectural coach tours ‘Everything You Wanted To Know about Access in The City, But Were Afraid To Ask’ promises to be ironic.

Liverpool Live 06
A Festival of Urban Apparition

The Live Art Programme for Liverpool Biennial 2006

Thursday 26 – Sunday 29 October 2006
Liverpool City Centre



With Bluecoat closed for a major development, its live art programme, Liverpool Live 06, is being presented in the city centre’s public spaces and at other venues. The main theme running through the programme is the changing urban environment, specifically the context of Liverpool’s current transition through regeneration projects. Liverpool Live will trace, re-examine, interrupt and ultimately re-energise the routes, buildings and landmarks of the changing city.

The city’s streets, public spaces, shops and other buildings become sites for performances, talks, walks, guided tours and actions, many of them created by international and UK artists specifically for Liverpool Live 06. Look again at local shops, double-take at passers-by, peer under the floorboards of a local landmark. All may not be as it seems. Then rest your weary feet in a recreation of a good old fashioned social club environment with a variety of entertainment.

Artists include Action Hero, the fictional dogshelf theatre company, Mat Fraser/Max Zadow, FrenchMottershead, Sean Hawkridge, Kazuko Hohki, LIGNA, Lone Twin, plan b, the vacuum cleaner, Joshua Sofaer and Marcus Young.

Liverpool Live 06 is a Bluecoat Arts Centre project, co-produced by hÅb.
