Help Karim Muasher bring his new solo show, which combines nintendo graphics and theoretical physics, to the stage.

About this project

"A Short Lecture of a Different Time" is my new solo show: a combination of nintendo graphics, gameboy music, theoretical physics, spoken word, and shadow puppetry.

It tells the story of the OLDVERSE, the universe before this one, long dead and gone. Two lovers meet, and soon discover the truth about their existence: their universe is dying, burning up into flames. Told by the Historian, a mysterious corduroy-clad stranger, this show asks the questions: How do you stop the unstoppable? How do you face the inevitable?

The show has been in development for the past 3 months, and has been a dream of mine for a long time. However, to bring "A Short Lecture of a Different Time" to the stage, I need your help!

$1,000-

Covers the absolute basic costs to rehearse and perform the show in New York.

$2,000-

Allows me to launch a companion website to the show, and tour to the Cincinnati Fringe Festival in June.

$3,000-

In addition to the above, allows me to launch a full 3 city festival tour of the show.

Thanks for all your help!
