SATURN: A Revelation — introducing the Inter-Dimensional Time-Traveling Disco Space Opera Dance Band: “The Living Ancestors” is a reverse time capsule broadcast introducing The Living Ancestors from the 2200s, when humanity is at the precipice of abolishing all systems of oppression. Join this space opera dance band as they embody songs of liberation and conjure the wisdom of their ancestors from the 2020s who honored their responsibility to leave behind a healthy global ecology for their descendants. SATURN: A Revelation is an immersive dance performance installation, direct action for community support, and multi-camera live broadcast exploring the question: what are we responsible for once we abolish all systems of oppression? This hologram-like radio show, with environmental projection mapping and multiple points of view, is magically performed in real-time through the Live Performance Camera Obscura.
