LSA (Live Stream Archive) is a temporary digital archive collating all of the work being shared online by UK Theatre & Performance Artists. Whilst there is a fantastic record of larger scale work in the UK, the documenting of fringe, small to mid-scale work, and experiemental work is less available.
Due to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the live performance industry, many artists and companies have been generously sharing recordings of their work online. These may be recordings of shows made many years ago to document a piece, or previous live streams that have been saved. They may be super high-tech or wonderfully lo-fi.
The aim of the LSA is to form a Hub to collate all of these disparate recordings and streams into one place, mixing established artists with emerging artists, solo work with ensemble work, experimental with more traditional.
