Award-winning choreographer Emily Johnson’s newest work delves into the power of future creation stories. An evening-length performance for the stage, featuring Johnson and a cast of more-than-human creatures, this work seeks to (re)build new visions of the forces that brought this world into being. In doing so, it brings into focus radical futures with the potential to reshape the way we relate to ourselves, and to the human and more-than-human cohabitants of our worlds. 

Estimated Artist Fee: $28,000/performance $33,000/week
