“Live performance is about gathering: coming together to reflect, to emote, to experience, or to meditate in a shared space and time. However, to gather, according to the Cambridge English Dictionary is also ‘to put your arms around someone and hold or carry them in a careful or loving way.’ Now in this current urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the time to sustain a different gathering of arts audiences and artists, to hold or carry them in a careful and loving way. Hence, we will be creating a free new festival in the virtual space, to encourage open access and circulation for all during these transitional challenges, and continuing to perform for future audiences.”
