10-hour durational performance activation

The Future is Present is an ongoing creative laboratory that brings together journalists, artists, academics, organizers and young people. Collectively, we interrogate ourselves and our relationships to both historical and contemporary texts as material for co-created experiences of performance and community gathering. TFP has created dinner parties on the history of voter suppression, short films, a collection of songs, an archive of documents that map out possible, equitable, and loving futures - and scripts for community based performances. TFP defines performance broadly and centers the cultivation of intimacy as a necessary and radical act of democratic and liberatory practice. TFP is in the process of making card games that inspire and teach principled forms of disagreement, as well as THE VOCAL ASSEMBLY.
