Live performance was always much more than just the spectacle. It was the communities around it, the intrinsic sense of belonging- the luminous discovery of the new. That’s why as artists, facilitators, and fans, it’s absence has been difficult to take. The pandemic has been a devastating blow for an already fragile infrastructure.
But as festivals such as CTM, Unsound, and Nyege Nyege adapted to digital platforms, they offered a glimmer of hope that stretched beyond problem solving into innovation- offering potential new models for live performance, audience engagement, and global inclusivity.
Now, as we tentatively return to physical spaces, this talk will consider what we can learn from these digital events when moving forward, and how a discourse-heavy, interdependent approach between artist, venue, and community might strengthen the live-performance industry for the uncertain future.
