Not really. I feel like my work is a record of my experience so for me that is my posterity.
I believe we are in the time frame where things will change, the next 5 to 10 years (maybe 15) will be the years of change for the unity of our country, indigenous and non-indigenous a like.
I’m really excited to be working with Next Wave festival and all the other artists and programs sound amazing – I hope you like what we produce – we’re making it for you (not just you, but including you. Everyone.)
My hope for the work that I make is that it paves the way for future dance makers to explore and create new spaces in indigenaeity, be that discussion, complete social revolution, dance or dreamings.
I just googled the word posterity.
all future generations of people.
“the victims’ names are recorded for posterity”
synonyms: future generations, succeeding generations, those who come after us; the future
“the names of those who died are recorded for posterity on a framed scroll”
the descendants of a person.
“God offered Abraham a posterity like the stars of heaven”
synonyms: descendants, heirs, successors, offspring, children, family, progeny,scions
So in light of that, if I am talking to future generations, I would like to say that I hope you live in a world where the power of words and language are understood, used and acknowledged and where people sing all the time.
