Medium: intermedia performance
Premiere: April 10, 2024
Duration: around 45 mins

How do we imagine a common future not only for ourselves, but for our grandchildren? What do we hope and want to create for them? Can our hopes materialize?

IHOPEIWILL explores our shared future amidst ongoing political tensions and escalating climate challenges. It conveys a sense of expectation and hope despite the prevailing global atmosphere of fear and great uncertainty.

IHOPEIWILL is an event that connects physical performance, sound design, and visual installation. Each of these media works independently one next to the other and simultaneously in synergy, which together create an organic whole.

The inspiration for the piece came from conversations with people in which we were interested in the optics of personal family environment and relationships across generations. What do we envision for the future, not only for ourselves but for the generations after us? What kind of world do we wish for them and what can we do to fulfill those wishes?

IHOPEIWILL thus becomes an artistic reflection of the current trajectory of society and our responsibility towards future generations.
