Mallory Catlett / Restless NYC

Mallory Catlett is an Obie award winning director, dramaturg and creator of performance across disciplines. Mallory’s collective ‘Restless NYC’ excavates the theatrical and literary record as a source for contemporary performance - to engage the past in a dialogue about its life in the present. The dismantling and re-purposing of stories that have already been told is a practice in transformation; an attempt to create openings, to find a way out, and forward. The work seeks to bring together opposite ends of the audience spectrum – those  who brings prior knowledge to the performance and those who might question its relevance. In this way, Restless productions strive to challenge the expert and include the newcomer. 
From 2014-2019 I have been working with Mallory as a producing advisor and assisting on tours.

Artist: Mallory Catlett / Restless NYC

Project: Archive This Was The End

Project Description: Archive: This Was The End is at once an artifact and experience — the afterlife of a performance as interactive sculpture. Here, you are the actor, and a wall — salvaged from the old PS 122 community center — is the physical manifestation of a memory of a play, which your presence activates and disrupts. Sound and video portraits embedded and mapped onto the wall produce a reverse relief. What is far seems near and near, far. The past hypnotizes the present, denying its erasure, to remind us of a life before that continues.
