Floating Lab Collective project
Drawings by Chris Rakley
The Occupy the Future stage is being created by DC’s Floating Lab Collective. Their design takes inspiration from Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, reimagining the visual metaphors for social progress found in the great Renaissance work as key figures, movements and symbols of contemporary social change. Created specifically for the historic Lincoln Theatre, the design will celebrate Pussy Riot, Occupy, Hong Kong’s Umbrella protests, Black Lives Matter, the three finger salute in Thailand, and others acts of resistance from around the world.
