the day after yesterday
An artistic research project with Utopia Syndicate, a theatre collective initiated by Madison and Tery Žeželj in October 2021.
Since its founding, Utopia Syndicate has been using the new-hope dramaturgical procedures established in Madison's thesis to foster hope and speculate on utopia.
For more details, please visit the Utopia Syndicate website here.
Below are some iterations of the research being shared.

Performance Proposal @ BAK
We performed a presentation of the Hope Altar and played Futurity Catchers with other daydreamers for the first time.
Summer Residency @ Het Huis
In this week we grappled with questions around negative hope (it is easier to hope for a world without sexism than to imagine what could replace it). We also played with visceral creation and destruction processes and made huge discoveries around procedures that are essential to the practice.
