Inspired by the feminist writings of Valentine de Saint Point and Mina Loy that reflect on visions of female sexuality, Lilibeth Cuenca Ramussen’s one-woman multi-media performance in “The Present Doesn’t Exist in My Mind, and the Future is Already Far Behind” depicts the struggle between being a strong feminist woman in a culture of post-feminist traps. Stunning and deeply touching, it's worth the outing.

It's the 27th century. The world has been at peace for 400 years. A troupe of actors unfamiliar with injustice and war uncovers a woman revolutionist's memoir of finding love during the bloody struggle against burgeoning fascism in the 20th century. The players from the future celebrate the love and courage of the 20th century revolutionists in an operetta, incorporating the eccentric and circus-like movements of early 20th century workers' theater.

"I never know what I'm capable of doing before I do it." These words, spoken by Oscar-winning actor Juliette Binoche (Caché, The English Patient, Blue), capture the intrepid spirit—indeed the daring—behind In-I, an intensely visceral dance-theater work conceived, directed, and performed by Binoche and the adventurous British choreographer Akram Khan (Steve Reich @ 70, 2006 Next Wave Festival). Together, these charismatic artists arrive at something entirely new, as an actor dances and a dancer acts.
