To discover illusions, goals, and possible and impossible dreams, while uncovering the uncertainty, insecurity, and fear caused by the unknown that is to come, to capture it in body, movement, and stage action. “El Porvenir” presents a future time, an imperfect time.

The piece solicits audience participation at each performance through three questions about the future: 1. If you could choose your future, what would you ask of it? 2. What are you most concerned about and excited about for your future? 3. What conditions will determine whether your future will be the way you want it to be? It is fascinating how at each performance the audience members – coming from different generations and places – share anonymously what motivates, scares, and limits them.
