In the future

we'll all be kings

 

​This project presents a theatrical, hyper-real picture of a community’s call-to-arms. The event appears as a collection of smaller dances, modular in form, ordered to communicate notions of confidence, empowerment and companionship.

 

Accompanied by a dissonant sound score, the work challenges the viewer's perception of time, looking to the future and backward to the situations that lead us here. Each instance allows for a multiplicity of readings and visually salient experiences to emerge along the way.​​​
