||Collective: Unconscious Archive
||Founded in 1995, Collective: Unconscious (C:U) was an experimental theater group strongly
committed to the neighborhood of Manhattan's Lower East Side and its developing artists.
Collective: Unconscious members staged dozens of their own productions at the group's
home on Ludlow Street (and later on Church Street) and rented space to many other
performers. As leaders of other performance groups, Collective members also involved
Collective: Unconscious in many of the downtown cultural festivals of the 1990s and
early 2000s, including the New York International Fringe Festival and the Downtown
Arts Festival. The materials in the collection document the production and promotion
of performances staged and hosted by the Collective and contains exhaustive documentation
of the group's administrative functions and financial difficulties.
