Between the Seas, starting in 2011, will bring contemporary performing arts from the Mediterranean and the Med diaspora to New York City audiences.
Our vision at Between the Seas festival is to share with NYC audiences and artists the vibrancy and diversity of contemporary Mediterranean performing arts. We envision the Mediterranean as a place of rich historical and geographical commonalities and differences that can be a model for intercultural coexistence and growth beyond homogenizing or polarizing interpretations of the region. In celebrating contemporary Mediterranean culture through dance, music and theater, we want to create bridges between the Mediterranean and its diaspora, and give the opportunity to young artists to share their work and exchange ideas in an intercultural event in one of the world's most exciting cultural and intellectual capitals.
To that end we will present:
-emergent artists from the Mediterranean in the fields of dance, music and theater;
-diasporic and US-based artists whose work engages with the themes of the festival and explores questions of Med identity and culture;
-young and established scholars in panels related to the festival's theme in order to generate reflection and debate on Mediterranean identity, its history and future.

Your donations will help us immensely in materializing this project. The funds we raise from this campaign will go directly into securing performance space in NYC for a week-long festival in the summer/early fall of 2011. Securing the theater as soon as possible is essential- it will allow us to start confirming artists, raise more funding from grants and advertise the event widely. In short: you are helping us to make this project real!
