Summer – Fall 2019

An Inquiry Dynamic into the future is a inter-disciplinary intensive that invites participants in the arts and social sciences to explore how daily concerns might develop when inserted into futuristic narratives. During the summer and fall of 2019 A.I.D. into the future will ask participants to collaboratively explore how Humanity and Technology might co-exist in the future. We invite students in the fields of performing arts (dance, theater, vocal, music, literature) and the social sciences (sociology, anthropology, history, law, economics etc).

Artistic director Nathan Trice designs a choreographic framework inspired by various situations in Social Theorist/Writer Charles De Veauxs’ dystopian, futuristic, sci-fi narrative as a means to contextualize and transform participants daily concerns around humanity and technology into forward thinking solutions.  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, within the future society.  The overall goal of A.I.D. into the future of humanity and technology is to inspire participants to collaboratively inquire dynamically about their lives and their future.

The intensive 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, yoga practice with Stephanie Battle of Sacred Studio and weekly nutritional guidance with Rebecca Dietzel.

At the completion of the intensive, participants will present a new creation during an informal studio performance.
