Event description

Description

In 2054 Next Wave is a black organisation that has taken over the world. Unrestrained western physical and power structures have collapsed from the constant pressure of change. As the climate apocalypse looms and economic income for artists becomes non-existent, a team of Super-warrior artists re-centre ways of knowing, being, and healing through the celebration of creativity.

Next Wave has remained in motion for 35 years, constantly shedding its skin and hurtling forward without fear. An arts organisation must remain agile in order to be responsive and relevant. Informed by the Next Wave archive brought to life by yarning with Next Wave’s past directors, two of Next Wave’s Blak producers present a futurespective for Next Wave 35 years from now.

Artists will reflect on their time working with Next Wave. This re-work will highlight the distance between their past selves, their present practice and their visions for the future. Whilst keeping the cyclic nature of art and Next Wave at the fore, Momentum will hold the organisation accountable. This transformative take-over will be aided by our friends from many Nations with their cutting-edge performance and musical language.
