Future Cargo

Category: Show Related artist: Requardt & Rosenberg

Future Cargo is an alternative outdoor dance show bridging grand visual spectacle and intimate fly-on-the-wall experience.

In the science fiction of Future Cargo, a truck arrives from a distant planet and contains everything required to start over. Within a shipping container, a parallel universe is created where the laws that govern our world do not apply. We peel back the side, using binaural headphones you’ll be invited to look and listen in to a world that is both strange and familiar.
