Clement Hil Goldberg’s Our Future Ends is a sad yet hopeful satire that connects threats of extinction to wildlife and wild life through fabulously choreographed final numbers. Oscillating between installation, projection, dance and theater, the work combines live performances with Brontez Purnell, Maryam Farnaz Rostami, and Heather María Ács as both long extinct Lemurians and the voices of stop motion animated lemurs (additionally voiced by Xandra Ibarra, Zackary Drucker, Ben McCoy, Silas Howard and Siobhan Aluvalot).
The ongoing project was exhibited at the Worth Ryder Art Gallery, SOMArts, and the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive. Clement recently received a 2016 visual arts Creative Work Fund grant in collaboration with CounterPulse.
