THE INTERNET will premiere at the Incubator Arts Project (http://www.incubatorarts.org/) in New York on August 12-22nd. This is the first show we have created where video and dance take on lead roles in development in an attempt to stage the world-wide-web, fusing dance, movement, video , music, original and found texts. Along with a large cast comprised of 20 dancers and 6 actors, ETG will examine what lies beneath the cool, sleek, surface of the information super highway by asking what propels us into the shadowy underworld of the world wide web where we desire to objectify bodies and see people fail and aim to find the root of human connection at its newest form. By incorporating vibrant visuals and an auditory circus comprised of musically staged interpretations of various websites and electronic transactions/interactions, we aim is to fully immerse the audience in a completely sensory world where playful and horrifying explosions of light, color, sound, and movement engages like dancing, flickering websites come to life while navigating through the blurry, teetering lines between romance, objectification, tenderness and uncensored cruelty.

We have started casting the project as of June 7th, 2010 and and rehearsals have started as of June 12th, 2010.
Donated funds for this project will be used strictly to production costs that are normally paid out of pocket by ETG members (which usually makes us unable to eat for rehearsal period but it's totally worth it) such as :

-Rehearsal space (Paying $10- $20 an hour in rental costs in NY + rehearsing 4 times a week in 3-5 hour increments = a lot of money)
- Various props
-Costumes to dress a large cast
-Snacks and water for our wonderful performers who donate time and energy to this project
- Script printing costs
-Ad space for various online mediums
-Set expenses ( we are purchasing fans, plastic covering, renting 3 projectors, etc)

and a lot more!

Even $1 will help us out immensely by helping us provide a bottle of water for a dehydrated cast member who has been dancing for 3 hours straight.

We love you!
