The year is 2066.
Natural resources are expiring; new leaders are emerging; and immortality is a very real (and potentially dangerous) thing. In this vision of the post-revolution United States, Savage Umbrella unfolds the intersections of the self, the body, and the community in this new suspiciously free society.
Who's in charge?
Through the lens of revolution and what could be scripture, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY examines leadership, communal thought, and survival strategy as the connective tissue between zeitgeist ideas and social movements.
How will you be remembered? How will you survive?
Speaking about the piece's beginnings, writer Lisa Brimmer says, "We spoke broadly about the challenges of success, and the coordinative dangers of power, ego, and legacy. The Futurism rings true, thinking about where America will be in the years to come, how individuals function within that greater society and the impacts on our humanity. The impacts of our human flaws as they guide and shape the world we live in."
