This year we have so many amazing opportunities to help build and expand the Hamilton and Burlington dance community. While we have the vim, vigour and drive to make it happen, we need help from our community to round up the funds necessary to bring them all to life.

Past board member, Shannon Kitchings interviews Lisa Emmons for this Kickstarter, hear what she has to say.

Below you'll find a sample of the amazing things we are preparing for this season, and where your help will go! (We also have A LOT more on the go than what we have listed here.  To check out the full scope of our season and where the Kickstarter funds will go visit: http://aeriskorper.com/donate

Prospects: an evening of dance and discussion

Prospects is now in its second season, and its growing into more than we could have hoped! This recurring event brings out local art patrons to discover new dancers, choreographers, artists and community members, and the performances create incredible discussions of ideas, sentiments and friendships. Shannon and Lisa discuss Prospects.

Our ultimate goal is to grow and strengthen our local arts community, and ensure patrons and artists have local opportunities to experience and express. We'd like to ensure we can continue to provide paid work for our local Burlington artists and choreographers. For Prospects, we're seeking funds that will help us ensure we can pay a local choreographer for each edition of Prospects for the 2019/2020 season rates that align with the Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists. Our next edition takes place October 19, 2019. Click here to learn more: http://aeriskorper.com/an-evening-of-dance-and-discussion

Summer Intensive Scholarship: supporting diversity in our local arts community

In Hamilton and Burlington, there are not a lot of practicing contemporary dancers, and we want to help change that. Our workshops attract an incredible and diverse group of local artists, who have the desire and potential to enrich our arts community through dance but don't have the funds necessary to further develop their practice. Shannon and Lisa discuss the scholarship. Our intention is to build a scholarship fund for our summer intensive of 2020, based on the excellent response and registration of 2019!

Collapsing The Night

Collapsing The Night will be a first-of-its-kind immersive dance experience in Hamilton, that will take place in the Gage Park Tropical Greenhouse. We're so excited to be able to create this production in Hamilton with help from the City of Hamilton Enrichment Fund. This has really turned into a community effort with all the involvement and donated time we've received from numerous local artists. Shannon and Lisa talk about CTN and the collaborators. The grant only pays for a fraction of the cost, and our priority is to pay the artists first, however in order to properly equip and execute the event, we still need a few more personnel and supplies so we are hoping to call on our community for support. To purchase tickets to the experience or to learn more, visit: http://aeriskorper.com/performances

Collapsing The Night Artists:

Choreographer: Lisa Emmons 

Projection: OPTICKS

Lights: Gordon Simmons  

Sound Design: Kelly Wolf

Live Music: Grace No Grace  

Costumes: Tanis Macarthur

Graphic Design: Charlit Floriano

Performers: Mikaela Demers, Lisa Emmons, Mayumi Lashbrook, Lisa  Pijuan-Nomura, Amanda Pye, Anne Prat-Kalonji, Dylan Vandemaele, Faith  Boughan, Alison Wright

Conteur Intern Students: Greer Holland, Shayla Dyble, Jasmine Laiw, Rachelle Ashmore

Thank you for taking the time to review our Dream! We hope you are compelled to make it a REALITY! Shannon and Lisa conclude their discussion.

Risks and challenges

Creating a show has a lot of risks: creative, financial, logistical, technical. We have brought together an amazing team who are committed. With absolute certainty these projects will not go exactly as planned and there will be challenges along the way. We are excellent problem solvers and without a doubt our team will work together to find solutions. One of our biggest obstacles right now is funding which is why we have brought on Catharine Katic as Marketing and Communications Lead to support our fundraising, granting writing and marketing initiatives.
