Dear Supporters,

We got a wonderful opportunity to perform, teach, and lead discussions about global citizenship at the Utahloy International School in Guangzhou, China in March 2011. However, we need some help bringing Chameleon there. Thats where you come in, I hope you can donate $5 or more to help us get there. Every dollar counts and we need to raise enough money to apply for Chinese visas, Flights, Transportation in China, Food, and Stipends for the performers.

In exchange we have some really cool rewards for you.

We need to raise $10k-$20k to get a cast & crew of 5-8 (dependent upon how many we can afford to go on the trip) to Guangzhou. Will you help us?

Disclaimer: If we do not get enough funding, we will use the money raised via this Kickstarter project towards our performances for the Toronto Fringe Festival in July 2011 (production, travel costs, lodging, food, performer stipends)

More Information about Chameleon:
Chameleon is a multi-disciplinary presentation about global citizens who have been exposed to several cultures in their developmental years. Exploring the notions of home, cultural identity and relationships through film, spoken word, theater, photography and dance, Chameleon draws on the insight and experience of Third Culture Kids: those who have spent a significant period of time in a culture other than their own. Home, cultural identity, and relationships in the context of multi-cultural and cross-cultural influences are explored through performance. This project is suitable for all ages and can be presented in conjunction with community arts based workshops in dance, spoken word, poetry, visual arts, jewelry design, theater, photography, and film.

*Update Jan. 20, 2011*
We have received an email from Utahloy International School and they are willing to postpone our trip until all funds have been received to afford the trip. This may happen in May 2011 or the 2011-2012 academic year. Either way, we will still have to raise funds to bring us there. Its only days away until we reach our Kickstarter campaign goal. I hope you can pledge a small amount and "share" it with your friends.
Thank you so much for your support!
