Continuous Monument is a group embodiment of the Italian futurist group Superstudio’s unmade model for “cosmic order on Earth”. Drawing from a past vision for future possibilities, this performance rethinks a fantasy through choreography, revealing bodies and negotiation in an endless present. Autonomous and contingent, joining and separating, the group attempts to inhabit singularity through multiplicity in one continuous, steady motion.
