Ancient Futures

2 September @ 4:00 pm - 9 September @ 4:00 pm


Afrofuturism inspired outdoor spectacular Ancient Futures blends contemporary circus and spoken word with Sound System culture and West African folklore.

Ancient Futures fuses music, dance, circus, spoken word and hip hop with design inspired by West African masquerade and Afrofuturism.

Our fabulous Afrinauts arrive from another dimension as curious visitors, welcoming willing participants to witness their unique community. Audiences are invited to join their ritual to launch us into a new reality that promises to build a more vibrant, positive and inspiring future than we might otherwise be heading towards. Conceived and directed by Vicki Dela Amedume (Upswing) and J Spooner (Unlimited) in collaboration with Quantum poet Oneness Sankara with new music by grime artist Afrikan Boy.
