START IN A PLACE
START IN A PLACE
Start in a Place Together begins in the Meadow Lands, on the edge of New York City on a rock formation we call the Tonnele Jut.
We are visitors on Lenni-Lenape land, near to the Ramopoh Mountain Tribe.
TRAINING FOR THE FUTURE
In a time of increasing global crises in politics, economy and ecology, dystopia has turned into the new norm. Training for the Future is a utopian training camp where audiences are turned into trainees to pre-enact alternative scenarios and reclaim the means of production of the future. Its faculty of trainers consists of futurologists, progressive hackers, extraterritorial activists, transnationalists, theatre makers, artists, and many others, each of which offer concrete exercises in alternatives to present-day crises.
THE TONNELE JUT
The Meadowlands is a fragmented habitat in the middle of the biggest distribution center on the East Coast. Materials move in and out twenty four hours a day.
This land has survived more than 200 years of industry and development, it is the site of extraction, pollution, abuse, and trauma. We will begin remediation and resistance with the Tonnele Jut as our teacher.
