The Trident Live Art Series

The Trident Live Art Series presents performances by seasoned professionals showing experimental and collaborative work in the intimate salon setting of Trident Gallery.

Performances of 30–45 minutes are followed by refreshments and informal conversation.

Live Art Series Director Sarah Slifer Swift curates and produces the performances, drawing on two decades of experience in the United States and abroad as a dance artist, choreographer, and producer.

Live Art Series performances are listed on this web site, announced in our gallery’s email newsletter, and posted on social media (Facebook and Twitter).

The experience of art at Trident Gallery is made possible by those guests who support the arts through purchases of fine art and donations to performing artists.
