Hello wonderful Backers,
Last week Turbines + Transmission reached our goal and has been fully funded. Thanks to your support and generosity, all 1,750 needed for the project was raised. The show started as a idea tossed around over a cup of coffee and has grown into a communal performance, the beginnings of which we now see.
With the project funded, Kim and I can now move forward in production design and planning. The performance art show is set to feature three pieces--a stop animation film, short story, and original composition--along with space for discussion. We predict that the show will run an hour. As of now, we have four tentative performances--Junction, Muleshoe, Nazareth, and Lubbock and will send updates as soon as we have confirmed dates and times. We are also in the process of launching a blog that will feature project updates, process entries, performance pieces, video footage, and oral histories from the Southwest/Special Collection wind energy oral history project. The blog should launch by the end of this week, and I will send an update as soon as we have everything up and running.
I cannot say this enough--thank you for your kindness. It is a blessing be part of a community willing to encourage creative thinking and art as a means of grappling with societal developments, problems, and issues.
All the best to each of you,
