"every lunge a statement”-Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice
Thank you for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter Campaign. Your contributions will help finance the production and performance of our first evening-length work, the supper, which will premiere at Triskelion Arts in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, September 8-10, 2011. Most importantly, your generosity will go directly to paying the artists who have worked so incredibly hard to make this project possible.
For the past two years, we have been creating a collaboration of lighting, electronic sound, costume, and choreography. And, what we have now is a compelling, multi-faceted idea that we are ready to share.

seamlessly between realism and abstraction, merging non-concrete and
"recognizable person" gesture. It ultimately surveys the spheres
and expressions of identity and illustrates the inquiries into perception and
Our goal is to promote communication. We are committed to breaking down the rigid wall that commonly detaches us from one another; the wall that stops us from asking questions and seeking answers. With the supper, we are aiming to eliminate the tight grip of expectation by replacing it with improvisation, freedom, risk, and evolution.
shadows, neurology, kings and queens, manipulation, control, forks, knives, pillows, guns, bandages, closets, exposure, soldiers, a birdcage, a memory: are being taken into consideration for this project.
