Sobremesa: Archiving Performance, Performing Archives
What is a performance archive? What are its limits if any of a movement-based, time-based archive? What do we at The Kitchen think of as a performance archive? What are the series guests’ definitions of a performance archive, and the infrastructures and value systems within? How do we capture, discuss, debate the nuances of ephemeral experience that are so essential to the form of performance, in the context of the archive?
