About this project

(c)ollaborate 78

(C)ollaborate 78 was founded by visual artist, Marla Kristicevich and choreographer, Paige Krause. Both were drawn together as collaborators to merge and explore the shared space of performance and visual art in which the nature of the work creates an environment which captures an audience for a given time.

(c)78 is interested in the dialogue between other contributors and between the community which surrounds them, examining the relationship and integration between contemporary dance, sculptural design and original sound. Their work and events have taken place in both traditional and non-traditional spaces. Often, they are interested in bringing art to an audience, staging events in backyards, vacant neighborhood lots, glass stairwells, galleries and reinvented apartments, just to name a few!

St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival

Here is where we need your support!

We were recently selected to perform this June 2012 at the St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival! The festival highlights music, comedy, dance and theatre including local, national and international artists. This being our first international festival we are so very excited to showcase our work!

The festival is less than three months away, so due to a quick timeline, typical funding channels (grants, etc.) aren't available. We are holding 3 local fundraisers, applying for individual artist grants and saving money on our own! 

All together, our budget totals $8, far, we have $2,000.

We are asking for your support in helping us reach our Kickstarter goal of $4,000. Your generous donation will go towards:

  • Travel expenses, including airfare and van rental
  • Housing accommodations for our 11-day stay in Montreal
  • Small daily stipends for a cast of 7
  • Supplies to re-create a portable set

We hope that you will consider donating to our Kickstarter campaign and help us on our adventure to the Montreal FRINGE Festival this June!

No donation is too small! Thanks for taking the time, spreading the word and supporting our work!


An intimate performance that follows four performers as they challenge the line between reality and fantasy. A physical manifestation of the compartmentalization of past memories and imagined realities.

Choreographer, Paige Krause, has been working as the artist in residence for the past year at the Acadiana Center for the Arts. Her work dissolves the traditional idea of the stage into a plane on which performers journey through the delicate lines of the human body, unfolding an intimate voyage of movement. 

Composer/musician, Philippe Landry, performs a live, original score in the space with the performers. The mix of folk, experimental, classical and vocal music, creating awkward associations and juxtapositions, punctuating each section of movement, suggesting dreams, memories and spaces.

Sculptor/visual artist, Marla Kristicevich, constructs and creates an environment through her work that activates the space not only for the audience but also for the performers, articulating I'VE STOPPED HAVING THAT DREAM I'VE BEEN HAVING as a live installation.

Lighting Designer:     Brian Schneider

Performers:  Esther Winn Burley, Kara St. Clair, Jamie Faulk & Chad Trahan

Videographer:           Jessalyn Newton & Trey Hopson
