Between Underground and Skyworld (BTW US) offers global Indigenous dance theater as purposeful gathering to restore vision for community – exploring current urgencies around resource depletion and extraction to be rebalanced by deepening understanding of   renewable energy from  spiritual, cultural and practical perspectives. The audience is invited to witness and engage with performers’ journey to recover ancestral knowledge on behalf of Indigenous-centered  futurity for humans and beyond .  Cosmological themes are  woven with locative media to engage a collective vision of emergence into the “fifth world” future .  These themes emerge from contributions of collaborating global Indigenous artists and  community advisors, including  community members, and honors the vision being cultivated by the next generation as the young leaders who are making the future with their imagination, and decisions , to nurture hope that will inspire action and re-balancing . As a performance-ritual, BTW US incorporates mobile installation, oratory, dance, music, immersive media, and design that includes salvaged and repurposed materials. Award winning Artistic Director Rulan Tangen collaborates with a constellation  global Indigenous artists, and California Native representation through soundscape and videoscope, that grounds the work in local respect and relation-building.
