Please help fund our show on November 18-19, 2016, at ODC Theater in San Francisco! It's a thrilling collaboration with choreographers Bianca Cabrera, Brittany Ceres, and Claudia Anata Hubiak, composer Ben Juodvalkis, dance and fashion designer Kate Mitchell, lighting designer Walter Holden, and photographer Alessandra Mello.
TERRAIN asks the question, "Why is an ancient tree a magnificent, treasured icon, while a woman who ages becomes an ill-considered side note in our culture?" TERRAIN refutes this contradiction and burnishes a new perspective on a woman's inner life and the outer world around her.
The show includes abstract photographic images of skin and the bones beneath them, along with images of trees, rocks, sand, and water, all sharing dramatically similar patterns and textures. The fashion and costumes, inspired by the photographs, are sculptural garments made for a woman's body, whose curves and lines add more layers of "terrain".
All of these designs are alchemized into two full-length dance concerts featuring 13 dancers, ranging in age from 22 to 57. We need your support to bring these shows to life! And there's nothing like seeing something live and in person! Music is happening, choreographers are inventing, dancers are sweating, costumes are emerging from piles of fabric, notes are covering pages and laptops, and we hurtle toward the performance dates.
We have already raised $5,000 in personal donations. Can you help us match that? Our Kickstarter goal is $1,118.00, the show's opening date, and we hope to exceed that number. Check out our fun list of rewards! And if you just want to make a tax-deductible donation out of the goodness of your heart, please visit Dancers’ Group, my fiscal sponsor, Click here.
Please help us get to the finish line. Thank you!
