Following last year’s sold out-success, Live Collision International Festival is back for it’s 6th run.
Across 5 days, Ireland’s leading festival of Live Art will emerge from Project Arts Centre, with a vast programme of international and Irish artists, presenting live performance, digital interactions, dialogues, exhibitions and publications never before shown in Ireland.
