The Futurist is an evening length dance by Laura Peterson Choreography with sound installation by composer Joe Diebes. The Futurist: Part 2 is influenced by the multiple manifestos of the early 20th century Futurist Movement. The complex and highly physical choreography reflects the Futurists' interest in dynamism, speed and the connection of the body to machine while simultaneously expressing the uniquely human experience of imagined possible futures.

"Peterson is an artist of the infrastructure, an observer of the banal underpinnings of our sensational, illusory world. Deep, and funny." —Tom Philips,
