Help fund The Truck Project: a series of theater installations set in the back of a 24' moving truck, touring from New York to New Orleans and Austin.
The Truck Project (http://thetruckproject.com/) creates original works of theater performed and toured in rented moving trucks. For each work, the truck interior is transformed into a dynamic playing space, based on the needs of each piece. As much an installation as it is performance, one show creates a vaudeville theater, complete with lobby and concessions, while another is performed in a barren, dark space where all audience members are led to their seats with flashlights. Each configuration of the truck can seat 20 people, and several short works are performed in repertory each evening. Our premiere in Brooklyn, NY held 10 performances in one evening, with an estimated audience of 250 total patrons, with many more unfortunately turned away at the door for lack of room. In Autumn 2010, we are expanding and solidifying our repertory and going on tour with two 25-minute works. Starting in Brooklyn, we will then tour to New Orleans, LA (performing under the auspices of the New Orleans Fringe Festival), and Austin, TX.
The $3,000 we are raising through Kickstarter will fund the truck rental, props and set materials, marketing in the cities we are touring to this Fall, and salty snacks for the road.
