A space for all our tomorrows

A space for all our tomorrows looks at utopia through the lens of disability.

Inspired by the historical artist community Monte Verita, A space for all our tomorrows holds a collection of voices & perspectives on utopia, generated through conversations with disabled and non-disabled artists, workshop participants and students across Switzerland and internationally over the course of two years. 

In A space for all our tomorrows, four performers channel the search for this intangible, imaginary, subjective place. Through movement that swings between intimacy, tenderness, and wildness, they embody the infinite human search for something better, a way towards our dreams, even if our dreams are impossible.  Even if utopia is intangible, maybe the searching does something for us - when we move, we begin to move something. Four performers finding ways to keep going. Four bodies resisting, persevering, refusing to give up.

A space for all our tomorrows is a celebration of how powerful, creative, and resilient disabled people are, the beauty and wisdom their perspectives can hold, and how much they have to contribute to the world.

A performance which is powerful, intense and disorderly all at the same time but also inviting, aiming to create a space to imagine our utopias, leaving people with their own perspective and, above all, the feeling that change is possible.
