“Desperate Archives” – An Exhibit – 20 Years of Split Britches Archives @ LaMama Galleria


 “Deposited somewhere between land and sea, between proliferation and devastation.”

An exhibition based on 20 years of Split Britches archival material.

Desperate Archives exposes the infrastructure of performance by emphasizing process and attachment, highlighting collaboration as the project for the future. While these archives are generative, they are also full of refuse-remnants of the past that have been stored away for years waiting to be rediscovered and to perform publicly again.”

Excerpt from FEELING DESPERATE by Benjamin Gillespie, Ph.D Candidate in Theatre, The Graduate Center, CUNY
