Between Possible Histories and Contigent Futures

(2021)



In the village of Dom there’s light growing in each garden. Light as pure as the sun itself. Even though being truly untouchable, they say that the ones who dared to drink it, never suffered from hopelessness again. How do we assemble a new definition of “us”? How can we negotiate togetherness? Drawing from Natalie’s eyes we perceive the determination of the hardworking people that bear on their shoulders the tyranny of control. Through bodies, voices, consensus and fluidity, the short story “The Village of Dom”, traces the path from replacing toxic hierarchical systems into the demanding task of being aware of power dynamics in informal structures.
