In 2015 Nick Cave began an 8-month term as artist-in-residence at Louisiana’s Shreveport Regional Arts Council. Most known for his performances involving colorful, towering sound suits, Cave’s project for the summer was to involve community organizations in a four-part performance titled “As Is.” AS IS by Nick Cave follows the creation of this performance in Shreveport—we speak with those involved behind the elaborate suits and beaded pieces that comprise the stunning and ultimately uplifting show as they dance and work. Through observational shots of the crew, artists, and communities that made this show happen, this film paints a picture filled with collaboration and hope; a space where everyone can feel free to be as one is. -AL
