Compass works to further develop live art in Yorkshire and the Humber. The aim is to strengthen and sustain the ambitions, diversity and vitality of the art form. Through the Live Art Directory, we aim to draw together in one place the wealth of different artists, individuals and organisations working in live art in the region.
Although reticent to define live art as a medium, for the purpose of this directory, Compass is influenced by the following statement: ‘Whether challenging orthodoxies of fine art practice, exploring the limits of theatricality, appropriating the idioms of mass culture, pushing at the boundaries of choreographic conventions, or exploring the performativity of cyberspaces, Live Art practices occupy all kinds of mediums in a volatile state’.
