The People to Come Archive
The People to Come’s archive is closed but can be explored online at thepeopletocome.org.
The People to Come‘s archive was featured in the New Museum’s exhibit, Performance Archiving Performance, which ran November 6, 2013 – January 12, 2014, along with archiving projects by Jennifer Monson, Julie Tolentino and Sara Wookey.
In conjunction with the exhibit, a canary torsi staged a real-time archiving installation in the New Museum Theater during museum hours, during which the archival video footage of the original dances created each night at The Invisible Dog were edited and archived live by The People to Come‘s archivist Kirsten Schnittker.
The installation culminated in a “Closing the Archive” musical concert with the musicians of The People to Come, Peter Bussigel, Stephan Moore, Caroline Park, Suzanne Thorpe, and Tim Rovinelli. They performed a live improvised score to accompany a site-specific digital installation in the New Museum Theater.
