- "The Sky Remains the Same": The Archive of Lovett/Codagnone's "WEIGHTED" (2010)
Saturday November 23 | 3-6 PM | FREE
Lovett/Codagnone's "WEIGHTED" addresses failure as a "feasible, honorable" possibility, and questions the concept of death as the ultimate failure of life. The short duet is executed here in its authorized archival form as a durational repetition of the same score, performed in sequential pairings by John Lovett, Alessandro Codagnone, Julie Tolentino, and Stosh Fila. A talkback with the artists concludes the event.
Sara Wookey: "reDANCE" (2011-ongoing)
Founded by Sara Wookey, "reDANCE" is a platform for public engagement that features processes and re-enacted works of renowned choreographers of the Judson Dance Theater era performed by another generation of dance artists. "reDANCE" explores the immateriality of dance and its archival practices through live performance, workshops, and discussions. For more information, visit redanceproject.org
- "Disappearing Acts & Resurfacing Subjects: Concerns of (a) Dance Artist(s)"
Sunday November 17 | 4 PM | $10 Members, $12 General Public
Sara Wookey performs a new solo work that considers dance as a disappearing act and questions recurring subjects floating in the public sphere-such as the preservation, ownership, and value of dance itself.
a canary torsi: "The People to Come" (2012-13)
"The People to Come" is a project by a canary torsi, a group led by Yanira Castro whose work is anchored in live performance and extends into other media and online platforms. "The People to Come" is comprised of a website and performance installation, both of which are activated by a conditional relationship to the participation of audiences through a meticulously designed archiving system. For more information, visitthepeopletocome.org.
a canary torsi will stage the closing of the online archive for "The People to Come" as a real-time archiving installation in the New Museum Theater, on view beginning December 11 and culminating in a special concert event on December 15 at 4 p.m.
- "The People to Come": Closing the Archive Concert
