(A.I.D.) An Inquiry Dynamic: The Future, is a 10-month interdisciplinary inquiry based mentor-ship program for Junior & Senior dancers who are interested in using future narratives, social sciences and the performing arts to explore & illustrate the trajectory of our contemporary “Humanism, Spiritualism, Morality, Racism, Technology and Environmentalism”.
In 2010 I began developing a dance intensive that would invite young dancers to collaboratively create work that use future narratives to investigate the future of our contemporary times. Over the past 6 years I’ve incrementally included the social sciences to further our investigation into the trajectory of Humanity, Race, Spirituality, Morality, Technology and Environmentalism. Our process has become one where participants are invited to explore and develop questions relating to the challenges of our contemporary environment and are then invited to inserted those current challenges into future narratives where the integration of race, biology and technology create new social, global and environmental challenges. Participants are then ask to imagining solutions to the contemporary challenges within the future narrative, while simultaneously exploring how their solutions might impact their future? We believe the integration and use of future narratives, social sciences and creative arts can help dancers develop forward-thinking practices and skills, as they navigate and problem-solve radical futures.
