HATORADE RETROGRADE: THE MUSICAL

February 5 - March 26, 2021

Museums of Future Past Times Present: Hatorade Retrograde The Musical centers on an eco-feminist science fiction narrative of life in the year 2069. At the exhibition’s heart is a video documenting the 2019 premiere performance of HATORADE RETROGRADE: THE MUSICAL. The central story chronicles resistance to a future dystopia impacted by cataclysmic climate change and an oppressive technocracy, an allegory made more poignant in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
