The Future Now & Glitter Milk Present: Creature

The Future Now & Glitter Milk:

Creature

RUBULAD

NIGHTLIFE

06-04-22

Creature, a wild animalistic art party brought to Rubulad by Join The Future and Glitter Milk unfolded in a whirl of fur, fangs, claws, tails, and googley eyes.

Encouraged to explore and express the inner creatures that live within, participants were invited into a world of immersive art where radical self-expression reigned supreme.

Sea nymphs danced alongside dinosaurs. Pregnant burlesque performers gave birth to small trolls on stage. Fetish models dressed in feathers and chains posed on a giant tongue while fairies and clowns drew them live. Kenyan musicians played traditional Luo music with instruments made from the skin of monitor lizards and cows. Creatures explored their inner shadows through participatory mask painting in a multicolored landscape of sound art, projected 3-D renderings, and guided meditation. A drag rat with three breasts spread the gospel of shredded cheese. Butts covered in googley eyes jiggled and twerked as jellyfish swam through a sea of dance floor bubbles.

In this unfolding arena of play and bizarre delights, creatures growled deep into their own imaginations.

Femme Fatale

NIGHTLIFE

The Future Now’s

Female Fatale (NSFW)

08-28-21

Sisters Charlotte and Emily Chauvin (@jointhefuturenow) started working at music festivals from a very young age. Charlotte says:

“There, we met such diverse people, from performers, to old hippies, to musicians, spiritualists, tent riggers, painters, designers and more! We were so inspired by the community to use art to encourage more connections. One notable jumpstart was meeting The Poetry Brothel at Electric Forest festival, and then performing with them at House of Yes!”

The twin sisters see The Future Now as a collective of friends. Together, they have a mission to make more spaces for artists to realize their vision and connect. When they start planning a party, for example, they ask their friends,

“What do YOU want to do, what do YOU want to see? What can we make happen?”

Femme Fatale was their way of getting all of the badass babes in their lives together for a night. Charlotte explains:

“So many of these beautiful people I’ve seen wield knives, draw (fake) blood, and literally scare the shit out of me (and turn me on) while onstage. I wanted to bring all those acts (and friends!) together because damn that’s hot.”

The event was produced in collaboration with Alana Miller AKA Glitter Milk who Charlotte met at a lavish banquet table at Suwannee Hulaween festival:

“She fed me crickets then flogged me over a Victorian couch. So, producing these kinds of parties together is a continuation of making these sexy, silly, and absurdly creative experiences we both love.”

What’s in store for the future?

“More parties!”
