I have been privileged enough to be dancing with a Bay Area based company, Philein/Ziru Productions this fall. Ziru Productions is a multi-disciplinary arts company that focuses on cross-cultural collaborations as a way to create an artistic base for the Chinese-American diaspora. Our artistic director, Philein Wang, infuses modern and contemporary dance with Tai Chi, Wushu, and hip hop for a movement style that is dynamic and unique.
An opportunity has presented its self for the company to be apart of an international tour in China this coming December; after our home season performance on September 23rd and 24th in Mountain View, Ca. For our tour to China we will be performing with the Yunnan Ethnic Arts Dance Festival in Beijing. It is a phenomenal chance to not only share our work with an international audience, but to learn about culture and other forms of dance.
The company and fellow sponsors are doing their best to cover the production costs as well as the expenses overseas. Therefore, I'm doing my part in raising some of the funds for the tour to help cover for my portion of the production and visa costs needed to travel to China. $1000 is the minimum amount to cover my portion of the product costs. Anything raised over that will be put towards additional tour expenses and will be greatly appreciated.
Since I am using Kickstarter as a platform to raise the needed funds, all the donations will then go through this site. If you would like to contribute and aide me into reaching my goal, please show your appreciation by donating. Anything and everything will go a long way. If everyone donates $20-$50 I will surely reach my goal.
Thank you so much for supporting me as an artist and a dancer. It truly means a lot and I wish I could share this experience of a life time with everyone.
