Abstract

Using The Bluecoat Arts Centre as a case study this thesis discusses the emergence and development of live-art practices in Liverpool since 1979 and analyses how these practices have developed in Liverpool in relation to local conditions, the national institutional infrastructure for live art, and dominant discourse around live-art practice.The thesis provides pragmatic recommendations for improving the sustainability, diversityand development of live-art practices in Liverpool and is based on analysis, discussion and evaluation of my first-hand professional experience and in-depth knowledge of programming,presenting and supporting live art in the city from the year 2000. Analysis and discussion of comparative live-art activity in Manchester offers an expanded context within which assertions and recommendations are tested and evidenced in order to provide useful insights into the institutional infrastructure for the live-art sector at a regional level.
