Futurewomen is an alternate reality series about the creation of black superheroines!
The first episode, Origins, introduces viewers to Honey Pot Performance with footage from the rehearsal and first performance of Ma(s)king Her at REVIVAL, held at Chicago's Pritzker Pavilion in January 2015.
Futurewomen chronicles the development of Ma(s)king Her, a dance theater work about empowered journeywomen who must survive oppressive environs. Ma(s)king Her is the newest work by Honey Pot Performance (HPP), a woman-focused collaborative creative community committed to chronicling and interrogating Afro-diasporic feminist and fringe subjectivities amidst the pressures of contemporary global life. HPP has been working together in Chicago since 2001, most recently at the University of Chicago as part of its Crossing Boundaries Residency.
