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.

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.

About Live Art Series Performances

A $10 suggested donation compensates the artists.

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

Walk-in guests are welcome. The capacity for guests varies with the performance configuration and is not known in advance. A conservative, fixed number of seats are designated for reservations. To reserve seats, please

  • use the online RSVP form at the bottom of the event's page on the Trident Gallery web site
  • send email to events at TridentGallery.com
  • visit or call the gallery

Gallery staff or an automated email will respond to confirm seat reservations or describe the alternatives.

Please do express interest and intentions for Trident Gallery Facebook events, but unconfirmed Facebook responses cannot be construed as reservations.

Unreserved guests are usually accommodated comfortably: they will be invited to occupy empty seats at the scheduled start time. When seats are fully occupied, standing room and sometimes floor seating are normally available.

If unforeseen circumstances require postponement or cancellation, notices will be posted on the gallery website and social media (Facebook and Twitter).
