Last Update: Special Thanks
We've learned so much from our performances and experiences in Asia and cannot thank you enough for making this tour possible.
In addition to our supportive Kickstarter Backers, there are a number of people who made this tour a success. We'd like to give a Special Thanks to:
First and foremost, Sarabeth Berman for suggesting this tour in the first place and for all her help along the way.
The BeijingDance / LDTX Staff and Dancers for welcoming us into their new home.
Jason Meeks for orchestrating our four performances at the World Expo, and Allison, Peter and the USA Pavilion technical crew for making us look good.
All the staff at the Guangdong Modern Dance Festival, especially Lap, Violin, Volans, Godzilla and Anther.
Willy Tsao for being a wonderful host in Beijing and Guangzhou.
Victor and Mandy from Y-Space in Hong Kong for continuing to encourage collaboration and dialogue between Hong Kong artists and foreign artists.
William Lane and the Hell Hot Festival in Hong Kong.
Although this is our last Kickstarter Update, we hope you'll keep in touch. Feel free to visit www.TzeChunDance.com for upcoming shows and a link to our Facebook fan page, where you can find a full photo album from the tour.
