the future is floating – futures event

Posted on Mar 18, 2020 in Events

We are pleased to present some photos from the Futures performance, one of the four public events that were part of the future is floating artist exchange in Sydney Australia.

Futures, performed on January 22 featured: Venessa Possum (Dharug Dharawal), Syrus Marcus Ware (Black, from Turtle Island), Claire G. Coleman (Noongar), and Jen Rae (Métis)

Through text, spoken word, performance and soundscape, artists considered what it might mean to be at the end of the world. Speaking to us from the future, each artist posed questions around land and water rights, colonization, emergency and resilience. Coupled with a sunset cruise of the harbour, stopping at Kiribilli and other notable sites along the way, narratives from the future invited audiences to consider the rich, shifting, fragile landscape both in and out of present time.
