    Past Works Recycling Plant is a mixed bill night of contemporary performance curated by Emergency Chorus.

    It's a night for recycled performance: expect reworked and remixed material, whirlwind retrospectives, rehearsal room B-sides, a re-performance of a live art score from the ’70s, or the very first work an artist made 30 years ago.

    Past Works Recycling Plant is a celebration of the ways that artists change and remain constant; how artists’ work is always already composted and fed back to itself. We reject the pressure to constantly innovate. We say: out with the new, and in with the old! It’s an invitation to time-travel, making room for the unseen, the almost-forgotten, the stolen, the scribblings-in-the-margins, the what-was-was-there-all-along.
