Future husband is an international, contemporary performance collective making work out of New York City. We are drawn together by our shared commitment to creating unique interactive art experiences and exploring the boundaries of what performance could be. We are five artists from around the world drawing on our wide-ranging experiences in puppetry, improvisational dance, theater, visual art and slam poetry. Born in SITI Company’s Conservatory program, Future Husband incorporates the aesthetics of avant-garde performance, post-modern dance, and queer art to engage audiences in shared experiences.
