Soothsaying with METROPOLARITY

Ras Cutlass, M. Téllez and Rasheedah Phillips of our beloved METROPOLARITY crew were invited to do a show on PhillyCAM (Community Access Media) in Philadelphia.

Join Metropolarity for an intimate night of prophecying, sh*t talking, and secret spilling.

Your anxieties about the future sent via email/text/social media will be answered on air in between doses of wisdom about how to live with the increasingly absurd, dangerous, and exciting[?] future present!

Soothsaying with Metropolarity from PhillyCAM on Vimeo.

The show originally aired live on July 7th, 2017. It also aired every Friday in July at 7pm EST, on Philly Comcast channels 66/966 and Verizon channels 29/30. =3

Thanks for having us PhillyCAM!

STYLE OF ATTACK REPORT

METROPOLARITY is a DIY sci-fi collective based, bred, and tested in the colliding future-present of Philadelphia. This Style of Attack Report contains select work from METROPOLARITY's four founding members, who contribute theory, practice, and experience of home grown speculative visioning for both historical documentation as well as personal and collective survival. The collection serves as a model and a record of how Black, brown, queer, low-resource, working, ill and in-recovery people can project themselves into the future, conjuring resources, technology, and magic that aid us in the present.

Also this sci-fi is FIRE cuz the crew don't play.
