The Future is Now

About the dispensation of time: what is given to us and what we do with what is given to us.
 
The constant flux and movement of time, the contracting and expanding and acceleration of time. The collective acceleration of energy in all it’s forms. The twisting, the turning, the reaching, the exhaling.
 
The rushing downhill. The toiling ascent.
 
The Future is Now – the outcomes we see and will live in the future are a direct result of the actions we take in the Now.
 
What keeps us from taking direct action? For ourselves? For our lives? What keeps us from pursuing our dreams? What gives us discipline to follow a plan through to execution?
 
How do we tap into the root force of human motivation?
 
What is comfort? What is peace? What is the essence of our desired state? Is it stasis?
 
What is movement? What is life?
 
What is art?
 
What is valid? What is achievable? What is success?
 
What is being authentic? What is being true-to-self?
 
What does it all mean… for you?

THE FUTURE IS NOW (2004) An Immersive Dance Theatre Experience exploring the raw psychic materials of personal motivation.

These three camera aspects were directed by James Buglewicz at the dress rehearsal of The Future is Now in 2004.

This production took place at Hangar 1018 in downtown Los Angeles in January 2004 as a two night performance art installation.

The tragedy of this production is that it was shot on 8MM film which was transferred to VHS tape for review purposes, all of which came home with the choreographer/producer to New Orleans in fall of 2004.

In 2005 prior to the finalized edit of the film, the original 8MM film was lost in Hurricane Katrina, leaving only the surviving rip to VHS, which was then digitized, and uploaded in exactly the state you see here.
