Future Becomes Past (2003) is a solo about loss, noise, and identity. The dancer's body is covered in handwritten text; identified, marked, subjugated, oppressed. By wiping away of the words from the body, experiencing the physical and emotional labor of undoing an inscribed body, navigating time and space, and interrogating the weight of memory and the gravity of nostalgia, the dancer is liberated. She cultivates agency and ownership of herself.
