little berin and Mascher Space are excited to present a two-day international networked performance festival: Low Lives 4 in Philadelphia.
Low Lives examines works that critically investigate, challenge, and extend the potential of performance practice presented live through online broadcasting networks. These networks provide a new alternative and efficient medium for presenting, viewing, and archiving performances.
Now entering its fourth year, Low Lives is an international festival of live performance-based works transmitted via the internet and projected in real time at multiple venues throughout the U.S. and around the world.http://www.lowlives.net/
