I am thrilled to announce that my new piece Ho sempre voluto regalarti un elefante rosa (trad. I always wanted to give you a pink elephant) has been selected for premio «Equilibrio Roma» 2013. I am one of nine emerging artists to be selected to present her new work in this showcase.
The aim of premio «Equilibrio Roma» is to promote and produce artistic creations in the field of dance, favoring emerging artists and the creation of original unique art. The winner of the first selection will be granted funding to expand the piece presented in February 2013 into an evening length work, which will premiere in February 2014. Two more venues are also in the process of being finalized. We need your help!
We have launched a project USA (http://www.usaprojects.org/project/the_italian_tour_2013) campaign to raise funds to cover tour expenses. The festival only covers traveling expenses within Italy. By January 6th, 2013 we need to raise between $5000-$9750 to cover tickets, food, housing, space rental and artist fees for three performers and a light-designer. The minimum of $5000 covers exclusively airfare and some of the set costs, thus the range of money is necessary.
We realize people are bombarded with fundraising campaigns and hope that this letter serves, if nothing else, to update you on our successes, however, this holiday season you can help make dreams come true, help Anh Nguyen, Devin McDermott and I to go to Italy. United States Artists is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Please consider making a TAX-DEDUCTABLE contribution towards this project. You can go to http://www.usaprojects.org/project/the_italian_tour_2013 and make a donation. Also, if you have already maximized your donations for this year, please consider donating in the first week of January 2013.
