Flutter is a new evening length piece created by MVworks, a New York City based dance company founded in 2005 by Megan V Sprenger. We are a team of people interested in genuine performance and committed to exploring individuality, vulnerability and compassion. We are interested in the mystery and power of non-narrative dance and its ability to connect audiences and performers through simple yet meaningful movement vocabulary.
Flutter continues MVworks' investigation into the audience performer relationship, kinetic transfer, and will utilize a wide-ranging movement vocabulary.
In total it will cost MVworks $34,000 to premiere Flutter in September. So far we've raised $21,000 ($12K of that this year) and now we need your help to raise an additional $5,000 which will get us to the production week. $5,000 will help commission the lighting, set, sound and costume designs for the work.
The Artistic Team
Flutter is a collaborative project created by Megan V. Sprenger with performers Donna Cicchesi, Michael Ingle, Tara O'Con, Anna Adams Stark and additional movement vocabulary provided by Megan Madorin, Kendra Portier, Yarden Raz and Alli Ruszkowski. The production will include lighting design by Joe Levasseur, scenic design by Brad Kisicki, sound composition by Jason Sebastian and costumes by Naomi Luppescu.
Want to know more? Each week during our Kickstarter campaign we will release a new video short on one of the dancers. Get to know why they dance, what they are excited about and how this dance is challenging them.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Creating performance in and of itself is a risk. It is expensive, it requires a team of people united around a common theme, it is physically demanding, and it assumes that people will come and see it.
MVworks has a plan to meet our expenses (details below) and we have a growing community that supports our efforts. We hope that you join us in these pursuits.
