Libraría is a project that pops up around the world, one that maps the geographical location and colloquial unconscious through the dreams of local participants. Each “branch” of the library consists of a blend of digital and analog experiences, stories given by our truest, most original selves in sleep, and assembled through art installation, film, poetry, performance, and an overall experience design that allows audiences to engage directly with the artwork. The first branch of Libraría premiered in Saint Petersburg, Russia at the 2018 CEC Artslink Art Prospect Festival.


Third Rail Projects Global Performance Studio and CEC Artslink Art Prospect Festival 2018 "Food for Thought"

CEC Artslink Art Prospekt Festival presents
Libraría: The Night Garden
Nourishment from the nightly cinema – a harvest of ideas, images, and instructions for the dream feast.

Libraría: The Night Garden, in Saint Petersburg, focused on film and augmented reality. All films were shot exclusively on iPhone for display as a series of hyperphoto images which formed a mosaic along the length of a public wall. Each photo was a portal, a dynamic link using augmented reality technology which could be viewed on smart phones via the free LifePrint app. When a visitor opened the app and placed their phone over a photo, the photo became a moving image – and each moving image, a link in a chain of abstract narrative.

NOTE: If you are attending the live event at Art Prospect Festival, it is highly recommended that you have a reliable mobile/wifi connection and that you download the LifePrint app in advance in order to view the hyperphotos. The full films will screen via projection on site as well.

"Experiential Storytelling & Design"
Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 10:00AM
Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China

"The future of performance is in the ability to mix a good and original story with exceptional experience design, putting the audience at the center of the work. Future creativity involves everyone, through intimate offerings that allow audience their own agency to maneuver through the work and explore the worlds created for them. It also fosters empathy by considering each individual through meticulously curated and unique interactions, sets and ephemera, and an engagement of all the senses. Immersive and experiential performance places its audience in the position of hero or protagonist, making the experience and narrative for and about them." – Tom Pearson

More About Future City

In the process of rapid urbanization in China, more and more challenges and opportunities are at hand. As we discuss the creativity-driven changes in consumption, industrial and cultural upgrade, we should realize that it is never a simple issue that single factor change can lead to a qualitative change in the industry. Each element constituting urban structure: education, consumption, manufacturing, space, culture and policy interact with each other. To understand the law, we attempt to put the best creative thinking in the world into the necessary parts of urban development, observe and obtain the phenomena and opportunities inspired by it: the upgrade of supply and demand, the awakening of cultural awareness, the update of urban form, etc. These changes provide the raw materials and kinetic energy for the construction of the future city, which inevitably contains unlimited business opportunities.

As Time Goes By


As Time Goes By


As Time Goes By

St. Petersburg, Russia – March 2016

Перевод на русский язык - Translate Page to Russian

Third Rail Projects International, with CEC Artslink, presents the first official project of the Global Performance Studio , March 6-30, 2016 in St. Petersburg, Russia with workshops, discussions, and performances in site-specific & immersive theater.

The residency in St. Petersburg is provided by Arts Link Back Apartment Residencies for artists and curators.

The project is led by Third Rail Projects Co-Artistic Director Tom Pearson and company member Joshua Reaver (New York), with Project Coordinator Yulia Bylenok (St. Petersburg), collaborator Renata Zhigulina (Russia & U.S.), and Local artists in St. Petersburg.

As Time Goes By will be the inaugural project for Third Rail International and the Global Performance Studio. Building upon previous models developed by Third Rail and through recent engagements with CEC Artslink, the Global Performance Studio creates an opportunity for cultural listening and sharing. For one-month, U.S. and Russian-based artists meet in St. Petersburg to share methodologies and practices for devising movement-based theater within site-specific and immersive formats. 

Collaborators will create a new work for the Ziferburg (a time cafe), and will offer audiences an invitation into experiential encounters with performers and situations that unfold throughout the staircases, rooms and hallways. As action occurs throughout the space, a fragmented narrative emerges through repetition, duration and simultaneity, about our relationship to passing time and what it costs us. Audiences will pay by the minute, and will be asked to make their own choices about how much time to spend, and where and how to spend it.

Recess 

St. Petersburg, Russia – September 2014

The Art Prospect Festival, CEC Artslink Global Art Lab‘s International Festival of Public Art presented Recess by Third Rail Projects and local performance artists in St. Petersburg, Russia,  September 23-30, 2014.

Third Rail Projects Co-Artistic Director Tom Pearson & Associate Artistic Director Marissa Nielsen-Pincus collaborated with 15 local Russian and international artists from St. Petersburg to create a new site-specific, movement-based public performance for the Art Prospect Festival 2014, curated by Kendal Henry. The resulting 20-minute site-specific work, Recess, was performed on September 27 & 28 at 2:00pm and 4:00pm. The work, which unfolded as a promenade between three distinct playgrounds, explored the notion of adults in a child’s world, where play is serious business, and architecture meant only for certain types of activity were re-purposed, subverted and challenged. The piece moved from a place of comical, regimented, utilitarian behavior into a place of dreamy quietude, and finally exploded with a burst of whirlwind activity.

FOUNTAIN

Almaty, Kazakhstan – Aug. & Sept. 2013 

The ArtBat Fest 2013, with CEC Artslink Global Art Lab and Third Rail Projects presented a collaborative workshop series that culminated in performances of a new public site-specific work for the elaborate terraced Soviet-era fountain on Arbat Street. The resulting work, Fountain, was a collaboration between Third Rail Projects Co-Artistic Director Tom Pearson and Associate Artistic Director Marissa Nielsen-Pincus with Yegor Vassilyev and local dance artists in Kazakhstan for the 2013 ArtBat Festival, an international festival of visual art and performance.

Fountain explored notions of permission and play in a setting that married Soviet-era architecture with the shifting and blurring boundaries of contemporary culture, fast food, and public versus private space. The performers observed the decidedly different ways that people passing through the space engaged with it, from the buoyant exploratory athletics of children, to the utilitarian thoroughfare adults have made it. Watching the fountains throughout the seasons of the day, the work embraced the way water flowed, or sometimes stopped, when the space became an obstacle or a passageway, and when it became a destination.  And finally, through a slow navigation of its many spans and reaches, from solid marble surfaces and grassy areas, to its wading pool and cascading fountains, the performers attached themselves to its topography, ultimately immersing themselves fully in its waters, unleashing a splash of full-bodied release and eventual rest.

BAthing Aiperi

Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan – April 2013

Zach Morris and Tom Pearson, choreographers & directors of Third Rail Projects, in partnership with Capacity Building Foundation and CEC Artslink and Global Art Lab, conducted movement workshops with local dancers, actors and performance artists, culminating in a final performance with participants in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan from April 13-23, 2013. The resulting immersive, site-specific work entitled Bathing Aiperi, was performed twice to over 500 audience members.

The title of work references a Kyrgyz moon goddess, but was also the name of the former Soviet-era shopping mall (actually a home repair and beauty center), which had been abandoned and in disrepair until the performance cleaned and occupied its second level. The images of bathing became center to the work and autobiographical of the process, as daily, performers and directors cleaned their way further and further into its recesses.

The local participants in Bishkek brought their own working methods, mythologies, and histories to bare on the work, and together with Tom and Zach created an evening-length immersive work. Over 250 audiences attended each performance and were free to roam about and follow performers into back hallways, shower rooms, and large "ballrooms," occasionally coming all together for larger movement sequences, or pulled away into one-on-one encounters.

Throughout the month of April 2013, US artists (Zach Morris and Tom Pearson of Third Rail Projects, Kendal Henry and Gabriel Reese) collaborated with local institutions and organizations in Central Asia, highlighting the unique perspectives of that community through a series of classes and a cumulative project. Gabriel traveled to Bishkek at the end of April to see Third Rail Projects’ final presentation, and from there all four met in Almaty, Kazakhstan where they participated in a panel discussion on public art.

The One You Love is Sick 

Hong Kong – April 2010

“Education and art with a bit of Gothic ambiance and history thrown in.” – Time Out Hong Kong

The One You Love Is Sick (2010), is directed by Tom Pearson and Zach Morris, and created in collaboration with Aedas My Footsteps workshop participants and the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation.

  • The Student Standard: “... site-work has proved to be tremendously rewarding experience for both artists and audiences alike. There's something about the immediacy and unexpectedness of site-work that can be profoundly affecting. We hope these workshops stimulate the participants to think creatively about other options for movement and how to rethink creating performance in public spaces. Our goal is that they will be inspired to continue working in this vein, and will in turn, share their discoveries with other artists.” – The Student Standard | Read the full article
