Junction Sampled: Live Art

Back for its second year, Junction Sampled: Live Art has grown to a full three day exploration of Live Art filled with innovative and thought-provoking performances, discussions and installations throughout the venue and beyond! This festival has been created to show the variety of performance styles encapsulated by the term ‘Live Art’ and to provide an opportunity for people to immerse themselves in the genre, or just drop in and try something new.

The weekend will feature performances and installations from artists including Time Out’s Performer of 2010 Scottee, former Artist in Residence with the British Antarctic Survey Chris Dobrowolski, and Curious, with their intimate and immersive, highly acclaimed piece the moment I saw you I knew I could love you. The penultimate show of the festival, Yara El-Sherbini’s Universality Challenge, is inspired by the BBC game show of nearly the same name and pitches a team of students against a team of locals to battle it out by answering questions about art, life and popular culture. The team of locals will face stiff opposition as the student team is this year’s University Challenge winning team, Emmanuel College.

Junction Sampled: Live Art will also include work curated by LACE (Live Art Collective East), a collective of artists who live and work in the eastern region making innovative experimental work in performance/theatre, dance, visual art, filmmaking, public art and arts education. Formed a year ago, LACE aims to produce high quality art works for diverse audiences. There will also be work by BA Drama and MA Contemporary Theatre students from Anglia Ruskin University.

Day Tickets (covering all events on Saturday, Sunday or Monday) are £12 / £8 concessions, Weekend Tickets (all events) are £30 / £20 concessions, and tickets for individual performances start at £3.

Free tickets for all of the performances are available for under 26 year olds through Arts Council England’s A Night Less Ordinary scheme. For more information about the scheme, please visit
