News from our friends + neighbors:
Theater Mitu presents “Utopian Hotline”
Utopian Hotline is a telephone hotline (646-694-8050), a vinyl record, and a performance… It’s a 45 minute performance installation at MITU580 for a limited and socially distanced audience of 12.
We’ve been working on it for two years with SETI Institute, ASU’s Interplanetary Initiative, and Brooklyn Independent Middle School. Collecting voicemails from all over the country, gathering messages from astronauts, scientists, futurists, spiritual communities, and middle school students – all answering the question “how do you imagine a more perfect future?”
