"A People to Come” offers a glimpse into the life of emerging contemporary artist and aspiring amateur boxer Desiree D'Alessandro. D'Alessandro's artistic performance practice is integrated with ambitious pursuits in athleticism. She couples gender and athlete demographics, while dissolving traditional fields and boundaries in order to implement a rigorous artist-turned-athlete training regimen with the aims of exploring the intersection between visual art and the noble art of boxing. The film is forged through a Deleuzean lens, in regards to how her transformational practice resonates with what Deleuze calls a "people to come"—in effect a multiplicity in the state of being born. D'Alessandro's struggles engage new, hybrid praxes that reconstruct, reterritorialize, and recontextualize contemporary issues regarding Performance Studies, Sports Politics, Race/Gender/Identity Formation, and Spaces/Sites of Resistance.
