Arizona Arts Live challenges the status quo. Shattering the boundaries that confine creativity to help build an ecosystem where communities, culture, and people flourish. Cultivating spaces and experiences designed to unleash the unpredictable and create lasting change.
Art should be an adventure. An exploration into an uncharted realm of innovation and talent that challenges you to think. Enriching and elevating. That’s why Arizona Arts Live is more than just a venue, dance, music, or installation art. It’s a community working to elevate Southern Arizona through the transformative power of the arts.
Take a chance to embrace the unknown and step into a world where the ordinary transforms into the extraordinary. Be it an exhilarating performance featuring extreme acrobatics several stories above ground, a visually striking retelling of a Gothic tale using shadow puppetry set to a hauntingly beautiful live score, or a cutting-edge performance 50 years in the making by one of the world’s greatest quartets. There’s so much to explore.
So, come. Enjoy brilliant, internationally acclaimed artists you know. Discover a whole new world of extraordinary live experiences. All in the heart of Tucson. Arizona Arts Live.
Experience Unexpected.
