We are raising funds to help us pay for rehearsal space for our newest production which will premiere in NYC this January as part of the Under the Radar Festival at the Public Theater:
New York-based performance and media company The Builders Association creates original theater works about life in the 21st century. SONTAG: REBORN is a chamber piece that draws from cultural critic Susan Sontag’s journals, tracing her academic and personal journey from the age of 14 to her emergence as a singular public intellectual. In REBORN, one performer’s actions and words are magnified and transformed through a richly visual media environment to depict the workings of Sontag’s prismatic mind. SONTAG: REBORN creates an elegant portrait of a magnetic personality under careful construction.
A small grant from the National Endowment for the Arts is allowing us to put the team together and build this show, but it's just not enough to cover the high cost of renting space in NYC.
We'll be at 3LD in Manhattan in December, rehearsing and building the show and it's that space that we are asking for your support to help pay for.
