Renegade Performance Group (RPG) presents The AFROFUTURISM Series with two unique full-length programs: “Untitled Distances” and “The Inscription Project,” introducing dance and technology as a vehicle of AFROFUTURISM.  This will be the first RPG season in our home borough- Brooklyn. The company season runs for four nights, November 4-7, 2015, at the Irondale Center in Fort Greene. AFROFUTURISM as a movement, expresses new narratives, ideologies, and symbolisms of Black culture from a global perspective.

RPG launched the AFROFUTURISM Series in January 2014 to be an ongoing project investigating the presence of Blackness into and beyond 21st Century techno-culture and society. It is a platform where themes and contexts of Black diasporic culture will be remixed and reimagined through contemporary dance, digital projections, and interactive sound environments.
