What: An evening dance performance by Antonia & Artists
When: Feb 14th & 15th
Where: Mascher Space Cooperative
Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking body language is universal. It isn't! Every body has a unique personal history that affects how we communicate and relate through our bodies. I may think a gesture means one thing and the person watching me can interpret it completely differently. We're interested in the beauty in listening to each other, despite knowing that we will never truly understand each other. This is the research we've been doing in the studio, and the dance we want to share with you!
We need $3,500 to share this full length dance we're making with you.
What we'll spend the money on: creating time and space for research and discovery - i.e. artist pay and rehearsal & performance space at Mascher Coop!
What we won't be spending the money on: expensive costumes & props, printed press materials, fancy technical support
Want to see more?
We'll be performing excerpts from the work so far at two Philly showcases:
Oct 18, 7:30 PRM - InHale Performance Series at CHI Movement Arts Center
Nov 2 & 3, 8:00 PM - Etcetera Performance Showcase at the Community Education Center
Curious about what we mean by misunderstanding body language? Want to take a look at our dance-making process?
... and what about that $350 reward - a painting? Ever seen one of Antonia's paintings before? Here's a recent one:
We hope you'll join us on the journey! Don't forget to share and like on facebook!
Risks and challenges
Putting on a show requires a lot of coordination. This is a great group though, and we have a supportive creative environment in which we can succeed!
Though it may be my first time launching a kickstarter, this is not the first time I've put on a show. Past performances I've organized (and led artistically, and performed in) include a performance benefitting Doctors Without Borders, a site-specific show in a set of squash courts, and a senior thesis show!
