Abstract

GENRE-BENDING PERFORMANCE Jennie Klein The National Review of Live Art festival in Glasgow, Scotland, February 9–13, 2005. his past February, I attended the National Review of Live Art (NRLA) for the first time. The NRLA, which is the longest running live art festival in the UK (about 30 years) is produced by Artistic Director Nikki Milican’s company New Moves International as part of the annual new genre art festival, entitled New Territories. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, New Territories also includes Winter School, a series of intensive, week-long workshops led by established artists and collectives, and a calendar of innovative dance performances. Initially called New Moves, the name of the festival was changed to New Territories to reflect the inclusion of the NRLA. The NRLA has not always been based in Glasgow, nor has it always been called the NRLA. Initially founded in 1979 by Steve Rogers as Four Days of Performance Art, it first took place in Nottingham, England, which today continues to host the NOW festival as well as being the home for the Live Art Archive and Digital Art Archive. Under Milican’s direction, the festival was transformed into the National Review of Live Art, 58 PAJ
