An Inquiry Dynamic into the Future is an interdisciplinary program that inspire dancers to use the social sciences and futuristic narratives to explore the moral trajectory of our contemporary dynamics.
As humanity becomes more and more co-dependent on technology to activate and mediate public/private interactions, A.I.D. into the future inspires participants to imagine the moral trajectory of Humanity, Race and Technology when inserted into a futuristic narrative where technological advancements influence social and global adaptations, prompting a constant radical re-framing of morality.
Artistic director Nathan Trice designs a choreographic framework inspired by various situations in Social Theorist/Writer Charles De Veauxs’ dystopian, futuristic narrative, as a means to contextualize and transform participants contemporary concerns around humanity, race and technology, into forward-thinking solution-based art. Trice and De Veaux compile and synthesis participants concerns to identify what’s most common among them and then associate those concerns with the problematic conditions found within the futuristic narrative. Eco-terrorism, food and water shortages, and the reality of biotechnological enabled surveillance challenge participants to collaboratively imagine solutions to the concerns of coexisting morally, within a radical future society.
The goal of A.I.D. into the Future is to inspire participants to collaboratively inquire dynamically on how to change problems into solutions today and in the future, morally.
The process offers daily technique class, improvisation, movement and text development practices with Nathan Trice and company members, weekly investigative research and discussion’s Led by Trice and Charles De Veaux.
At the completion of the intensive, participants will present a new creation during an informal studio performance.
