Well... the 2012 Minnesota Fringe Festival is over. We had a wonderful time and five fantastic shows. Thank you so much to the local folks (and the travelers!) who came out to see what we were up to. We felt extremely supported and gathered some really great feedback. Our brains are buzzing with new dance-neuro ideas.

Attached is a sneak peek at one of the beautiful photos taken by Scott Pakudaitis. If you picked a rewards level, your goodies--including more photos--will be on their way to you by the end of next week. 

On another photography note, Stan Waldhauser took the lovely image on our Fringe Festival and Kickstarter homepages. We love our dance photographers!

Tonight's the night!

Our show opens at 7 p.m. tonight and we could not be more excited (we could be a little less nervous, though). We're ready to rock and roll and are so appreciative of the support!

A little fun news: our show photography was featured in yesterday's Pioneer Press Arts and Entertainment section, identifying one of two shows combining art and science. Very cool. 

We hope to see many of you local folks throughout the festival! Each show runs for five different nights:

Have a great weekend,

Wow! We are 93% funded with less than three hours to go. Thank you one million times over for your support. It is humbling and heartwarming. You are playing a huge part in making this a successful project and we are SO excited to get on with the show.
