Dearest Object as Performer Supporters,
This will be the last update I will send.
Tomorrow marks the end of our final fundraising campaign on Indiegogo, and I wanted to send one last reminder that you can still support this project. While it may seem counter-intuitive to donate funds to a project that has already occurred, I'm sure any of you who have ever executed a performance, an event, manufactured a product or witnessed any of the above realize that funding doesn't stop being necessary at any stage in the game. As it stands now, there are still bills that need to be paid, artist stipends to distribute and books to publish. You can still help this project reach its goal, which will not only satisfy residual expenses from the performance a few weeks ago but may also make it possible for Object as Performer to be remounted in another space for a longer duration.
The show was an undeniable success, with sold-out audiences for two nights in a row and positive reviews published across the blogosphere. I would love to bring this show to more audiences in the future. Indiegogo works on a model that allows us to keep any funds that are pledged, so even if we don't reach our goal, your funds will directly impact the production of this show.
You may have seen the recent article about how Kickstarter expects to distribute more funds to artists than the National Endowment for the Arts. If you truly believe in this grassroots-style, DIY support model, please throw your support toward this campaign.
Thank you again to all of you who were able to attend the show, to those of you who have already thrown your financial support toward this campaign, to those of you who shared the link with others and to everyone who had such kind words to say about this incredibly interesting show.
Again, the link to donate is here: http://www.indiegogo.com/Object-as-Performer
All my best,
