We Will Have Had Darker Futures attempts to weave together the past, present and future; to ask the present to welcome a desirable future by acknowledging the past, and to mix it all up into a time loop allowing our sense of temporality to be blurred. We Will Have Had Darker Futuresthinks of possible new futures through daydreaming, language, and dance while continually emphasizing the passage of time in the act of collective finger knitting. Playing with our sense of anticipation, We Will Have Had Darker Futures is a short term detachment from our immediate surroundings, a visionary parallel reality that contemplates the bounds between past and present. The aim is no less than making the future into a blank page that is ours.
