On June 23rd, 24th and 25th this year, I want to perform my new solo performance play VCR Love at SimpleStudios in New York City. I've been working on this show for almost a year now and have been eager to share it with audiences.
Like I say in my video, pornography is the one thing that everybody enjoys alone but never speaks of in mixed company. This fact compelled me to create a solo performance that would do just that...talk about it in mixed company. Furthermore, in the past 25 years, as everything around us has become digital, pornography has changed in some very compelling ways. With VCR Love I will be exploring, lampooning, questioning and celebrating those changes.
My goal is be able to perform the show three times in one of the larger spaces at SimpleStudios. I also want the June 25th performance of VCR Love to be professionally recorded so I can send the DVD to other theaters for potential future bookings.
Since SimpleStudios is typically a studio/rehearsal space they do not allow performers to charge admission at the door. Thus, using Kickstarter to raise the funds for this project would be the best way to both cover space costs and provide the show to an audience free of charge.
$220 of the money I raise will go to renting the space at SimpleStudios. The other $80 I raise will go to renting equipment for the professional videographer who will be recording the Saturday evening performance.
See you all in June at SimpleStudios :)
