    // FUTUREWOMEN: AN ALTERNATE REALITY SERIES //

    Futurewomen: An Alternate Reality Series chronicles the development of Ma(s)king Her, a dance theater work of speculative fiction about empowered future beings and journeywomen.

    Futurewomen documents women of color creating, through dialogues, story circles and performance workshops, a collective heroine who must adapt to oppressive environs and circumstances.

    It combines the drama of artistic creation, representations of original artwork, and alternate reality game (ARG) elements based on those arts. The series will be shot at the University of Chicago’s Arts Incubator in Washington Park in collaboration with Honey Pot Performance as part of their Crossing Boundaries residency with Arts + Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture. The project started production in January 2015 and begins releasing episodes by summer.
