SYREN had the honor of presenting at Yale University last Fall at a Colloquium on "Beauty". The presentation went tremendously well and the company has been invited to join in the next event in the series which is taking place in Paris on December 17, 2012. While some funds have been raised to present SYREN, there are additional costs, and funds are needed to be certain that we can travel to France and give an evocative and heartfelt presentation. We hope that you will consider supporting SYREN through this momentous opportunity!
Risks and challenges
SYREN has successfully produced 10 New York Seasons. The organization has a stable sense of fund-raising and allocation. There are certainly risks when taking on any project. Risks for this include finishing the dance piece/presentation, finding accommodations in Paris, and a challenge is going to be organizing the trip itself.
As far as finishing the piece and presentation: SYREN has outlined the rehearsal process and has a goal structure for the timeline. This has worked well to outline the arc of the process in the past and ensure completion. There is a specific schedule of rehearsal and space already booked and this outline will be followed to be sure all aspects of presentation are intact.
Finding accommodations in Paris: SYREN has begun to reach out to our personal network to discuss travel arrangements. One of the organizers of the event has agreed to help us (she resides in Paris) to find appropriate accommodations. If she should become unavailable, SYREN's directors have begun to familiarize ourselves with motels/hotels so that we may make an educated choice should we need to do that on our own.
The challenge of organizing the trip itself is a fun, but full challenge. We have begun to outline what is expected of us (giving presentation that day, being available to answer questions, meeting with organizers) as well as what we would like to do while in Paris: museums, art schools, etc. We will outline an itinerary and make a schedule prior to the trip. First priority will be to the responsibilities of the project. We would like the trip to be both organized and fulfilling,
We are thrilled for this opportunity and thankful to Kickstarter for helping us achieve it!
