Born out of performances conducted through our *Artlab series; The Free Will Ensemble will serve as an atelier for the expansion of those experiments. The project will bring together a wide range of creative conjurers of different ethnicities and disciplines to construct highly stylized theatrical experiences.
The Goals of U*Space's F.W.E
Create visceral works that explore/address issues of identity, race, gender and culture as they pertain to communities of the 21 century and beyond.
Fearlessly push past boundaries in order to create work that is un- or under-represented.
Provide new models of employment opportunities for participants as well as serving as a model for the creating of professional yet inexpensive projects.
Embody the true meaning of Ujima the Swahilhi word for collective work and responsibility.
Create visual installations and community talks around each experiment.
The F.W.E. is interested not only in content (the work) but in context and ways of empowering artists as space-holders and creators of the artistic context
Individuals wishing to work with F.W.E. must be willing to contribute: Time, Contacts, Talents and Physical Skills.
