From Touch Performance Art, the resident company of OBERON, comes Sexyback: or what you will- the ultimate boy band experience- a crazy concert of frosted tips, falsettos and killer dance moves inspired by Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.
Sexyback's immersive club environment embodies the feeling of that NSYNC concert you went crazy for. A traditional male ensemble captures that boy band fever that we had, plus all the hilarious gender-bending glory of Shakespeare. Come party on the dance floor to all the boy band hits you know by heart as the show unfolds around you. After the show, the party continues into the night so that you can live out your own NSYNC reunion fantasies.
Move around the club, dance, and sing along in this crazy 90’s dance-party/Shakespearean mashup that we never thought could really work- but does! Now we need your help to pull it off.
Your funding goes to develop the world of Sexyback! Developing new work is a long, expensive process, but we are in it to win it. Your donation will help us get costuming, make-up, pay for extra rehearsal time with actors, scenic design and props. We want to pay our professional actors and designers what they are worth. You are helping build careers and contributing to developing their talent and skill.
Seriously, every single contribution (no matter the size) will make a tangible difference to our show. We hugely appreciate your support.
Our first workshop will occur on March 24 in Boston, MA at the American Repertory Theater's OBERON, and finally to full production in Fall 2014!
Risks and challenges
Live theater is not easy. It's full of surprises and challenges. But that's also part of the fun and why we've already invested over a year into building SEXYBACK the right way.
One of our biggest challenges has been coordinating the schedules of our busy creative team, cast, and production team with the American Repertory Theater's robust organization across NYC and Boston. The residency at the A.R.T.'s OBERON, and the choice of SEXYBACK to be the next new work developed in their club-theater space is a real testament to their passion for this show - it's been amazing to see it take shape.
Regarding delivery of the rewards, we have already begun arrangements with various suppliers to ensure that we WILL be able to meet our estimated delivery dates. Should the volume of rewards overtake our capacity, we will hire a professional fulfillment company so that no one is left waiting.
Lastly, here is some important legal information:
· Please read the rewards carefully to determine those which are location or date specific. Travel, lodging and transportation are NOT included.
· Must be over 18 or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to attend all events.
- Dates of parties in Boston will be determined based on the creative team member's availability. Once we have set a date, we will give you as much advance notice as possible.
· Some rewards may require that you (and your guest, if applicable) sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement upon your arrival.
