Artist Clement Hil Goldberg speaks to the urgency of creating revolutionary glittering ancestral art, both as a prayer to encode our embodied knowing, and for the sake of supporting and blessing our queer descendants. Go see the show!
Their show, Our Future Ends runs through Saturday, October 21. It is a sad yet hopeful satire that connects threats of extinction to wildlife and wild life through fabulously choreographed final numbers. The multidisciplinary piece unearths Lemuria in a visual arts installation that unfolds into parallel narratives. Oscillating between video documentation, animation, dance and theater, the work combines live performances from Brontez Purnell, Maryam Farnaz Rostami, and Heather María Ács as both long extinct Lemurians and the voices of stop motion animated lemurs (additionally voiced by Xandra Ibarra, Zackary Drucker, Ben McCoy, Silas Howard and Siobhan Aluvalot).Choreography by Larry Arrington, Costume Design by Margaret Bolton Grace, Lighting Design by Jerry Lee, Original Music by Sophia Poirier and Hale May, Original Score by Ted M.
