I'm a freelance dance artist who lives in NY and is in the process of a new creation.. I recently have lost a good soul, a dear friend of mine and want to dedicate this new creation to her memory.

This piece will premiere on the 15th of December (8:30pm) in Cunnigham Studio and will be sent out to various showcases and festivals all around the world. I am designing a male duet which will also allow a deep exploration of a new movement vocabulary and bring in a new aesthetics to contemporary movement.. Challenging the instruments is one of the main driving points in my creative process.

The rehearsal period is about to start as I'll meet with the dancers who are interested and have a rehearsal to meet them and how we can fit together in a bowl. The sharing of energy between the partners is highly important so I'd rather meet and start moving with the dancers to be able to pick up the best match. Then the whole physically and emotionally challenging rehearsal period begins.. With the ideas in my mind and with the respond I get from my dancer, with the unique vocabulary we build up together, the piece forms itself and slowly gets ready to meet the audience.

As working on establishing a professional company, the creative process, performance period and the post production costs money.. We need your support to be able to go on making new works, performing defined beauty and being able to share it with our audience. Dancers, rehearsal spaces, costumes, lighting and probably many more details that I cannot think of right now, can be made possible through your donations.. For this limited time, to be able to concentrate on the creative process, I need to raise a $700 from the Kickstarter in a short period of time. You can donate starting from $1 and be a big support on our new steps..

Thank you for your Support,
Korhan Basaran
