Walt Disney & the Invention of the human

The year is 2966. In these dark, disconnected times, one figure has emerged as a beacon of old world wisdom – Walt Disney. Indeed, in the thirtieth century the Disney canon is studied by the world's foremost cultural scholars, who excavate the deceptively simple tales for their all-too-prescient morals. Join us for the keynote address of DisneyRise, where, after lying frozen for a thousand years, this latter day prophet will finally be revived. As we eagerly await his wisdom, we just may see into the future of what it is to think about the past.

Performed at Fresh Ground Pepper: The Future (2013).
