ABOUT THE SHOW

Volcano, My Love is a massive undertaking of movement and words.  11 people coming together to dance and explore New Jersey, exile, mermaids, dissociative fugue disorder and ideas of exoticism, in no particular order. The cast is amazing, an eclectic mix of talented folk who are giving so much to develop a new mythology, a new dance and an odd but fun new world.

Cast: Kate Abernethy, Laura Baehr, Salena Braun, Christopher Broholm, Karina Howard, Kathy Kerner, Matt Lamson, Claire Lutz, Carolina Millard, Melissa Rodis, Judith Sachs

Lighting Design: Shon Causer

GOALS WITH FUNDING

We need to raise a minimum of $7,700 to support artist salaries, theatre rental, lighting design, costume design, original music composition, marketing, documentation (photography and videography).  We have put together a fun collection of rewards for your support and an opportunity for you to join us on our Kickstarter journey for Volcano, My Love.

HOW YOU GET INVOLVED

Every project is a conversation among the performers, production artists and supporters.  Volcano, My Love is unlike anything I’ve done before and it’s the largest cast I’ve ever worked with. I know how blessed I am to have the support of these talented energetic artists and we are all very grateful for your partnership at all levels of contribution. The rule of Kickstarter is all or nothing. If we don’t meet our goal, we don’t receive any funds.  Your support matters greatly.

 QUESTIONS

If you have questions about the project, our budget, our creative mission, we would love to hear from you.  Please feel free to email us.

Thank you thank you thank you.
