I've been working on HOMELAND for a few years, and now it's time to bring it public in a fully-produced evening, to take place in February in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn. Art is expensive - the budget for this show (4 performances) is just over $20,000. The largest single item in the budget is for performance space rental. I have a great team of artists on board and I'm also fortunate to have some people in my corner who know a thing or two about fundraising. I'm sure that we'll reach our overall goal.
One way to get there is to set incremental goals along the way. To get things started, I'm asking you to pledge to help me raise $900 by October 30 to cover the cost of the deposit for the performance space. Once the deposit is paid, the contract will be signed and we'll be on our way to making the February performances happen.
Finding the right space for HOMELAND was not easy. By pledging now, you'll be helping us create this piece in a performance space that will be essential to the overall artistic product. Kickstarter is exciting because in addition to raising needed funds, we can build an involved online audience.
