About this project

My name is Ivonne Batanero and I am a Miami based dancer and choreographer. This year I have been commissioned for the second time by the Miami Light Project to premiere a new work entitled "Project: Invasion".

"Project: Invasion" has been a piece that has been brewing in my mind since 2009 when my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. This piece draws inspiration from my feelings of sadness, irony and sometimes humor in response to the diagnosis of this deadly disease and how common it is in our society right now.  It seems that almost everyone can say they know someone with cancer or have been affected by it in some major life altering way.  Its regularity has made it the most fashionable of fatal diseases.  

"Project: Invasion" explores the metastasis of the abnormal and brings some light heartedness to this very strange disease.

I am really excited to finally get the chance to bring this idea to the stage! And I need your help to be able to complete this new work.

I am raising funds so that I can pay all my dancers for all their time and effort, for the props, costumes, and composer fees. 

Thank you for watching! Please share the video :)

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge right now is finding the time in everyones busy schedule to really push the piece to its highest potential. Everyone is really working hard but as dancers, choreographers, and teachers we are forced to have multiple jobs in order to be able to live as artists. Although, the clock is ticking I am confident that we will reach our potential, but it is always a challenge.
