Mallory Catlett is a creator and director of performance across disciplines from opera to installation. Her ongoing focus is the connection between linear constructions of time, language, and the destructive impulse. She is the artistic director of Restless NYC, a company that re-constructs and re-situates old stories to ask what else can time and language do? Employing strategies of disruption, site-specificity, mixed media, fragmentation and reconfiguration, Catlett creates unique time machines, that blur the senses and destabilize the word. 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.
