Collaborating artist visionaries reveal cyberspace as a realm of ritual, to reimagine the future from the brink of collapse of the dominant system and re-emergence of Indigenous cosmologies. Technology is reclaimed to affirm connections between distant places and times. At a time of DisDancing: what is the message from human-to-human; what is the sacred invisible web that connects us? We reach into the constellations to remember ancestral stories of creation after destruction, to guide us forward.
EXPLORING THE QUESTIONS
1. Ritual – to reimagine the future that we are stepping into , and what are are the superhero powers/innate purposes in life/guiding philosophies that we are conjuring and embodying to get there
2. ReCreation post apocalypse: what are our creation stories that can teach us about resilience in the remaking of the world
3. What is the Message from Humans to Earth of Love in a Time of Corona?
4. During these dark times, what is the light that each of us carries, as constellations?
5. at a time of DisDancing : what is the message from human-to-human; what is the sacred invisible web that connects us?
6. Can intuition, imagination, and Indigenous science that parallels quantum theory, bring us together over vast distances of places, time , difference to meet in the spaces between – the connective tissue, the flow, the infinite, liminal space, the life force energy we all share?
