What if no one had a past? And what if a society without a past is living in a dystopian future where, instead of “Hunger Games,” the youth competed in a prestigious performing arts competition? That is the premise of Hulu’s upcoming series Utopia Falls.
Disney’s streaming platform released new details about the series
“Set in the not-too-distant future, amidst the charred ruins of Earth, Utopia Falls follows a group of teens chosen to compete in the prestigious Exemplar performing arts competition in the seemingly idyllic colony of New Babyl. When they stumble upon a hidden archive of cultural relics, they are forced to question everything they have been taught, ultimately using the power of music to ignite change and expose the truth. Showcasing a variety of musical genres and dance styles (Hip Hop, Pop, Latin, House, Classical, Indigenous, among others), and featuring themes of afrofuturism, youth activism, and eco-awareness, Utopia Falls is the first ever performance based sci-fi series for culturally diverse and socially and politically minded young audiences. “
Utopia Falls stars Robyn Alomar, Akiel Julien, Robbie Graham-Kuntz, Phillip Lewitski, Humberly Gonzalez, Devyn Nekoda and Mickeey Nguyen. It also features former Dark Matter and Wynonna Earp stars Jeff Teravainen and Kate Drummond.
