The big push for "pUsh"!
Please continue pledging, even though we've reached the "goal"! The goal was half our theater costs. Now we're reaching for the rest!
You may notice, if you look closely at the top portion of this lovely page on the right, that we have actually reached our funding goal. WAIT! PLEASE READ ON, ARTS LOVER! This means we WILL receive not only the goal amount, but every penny pledged for the project thereafter as well. We CAN continue to raise funds! So, please keep pledging! The $1500 goal will cover the cost of the downpayment for our theater rental. This secures the space. Money raised for this project BEYOND the goal will cover the rest of our theater costs. The downpayment is about half the total theater cost.
What ARE we doing???
Much like running a marathon or giving birth, I am mustering all of my power, strength, and resources to launch us into this project, "pUsh". This will be Evolving Doors Dance's maiden voyage into the land of media and tech as part of an artistic endeavor and we are super pumped about it! My next big step is securing our theater space, giving us a glorious space from which to send our elaborate creations out into the world and the world-wide-web! (We will be broadcasting the performance live!) This campaign is to raise funds for a deposit on our theatre space rental for this performance! I'll keep you updated on our company progress along the way!
How are we going to do THAT??
With your involvement, that's how! The arts are a tremendously important and rich part of our heritage, our society and social-wellness, and our future! Donations from you give us a chance to focus on making and perfecting the art work we share with the community, and also give us the chance to focus on how to bring the community more and more into the dance and art we've created. Dance is what I do. It is the first thing I think about when I rise in the AM, and the last thing on my mind when my head hits the pillow. Sending my work out into the world so I can connect with my audience is paramount! Once a theater space is secured, we move right along to publicity and all the design elements of the project. These are the biggies.... but none of it will go further than a hop, skip and jump without the theatre to dance in! It is also tremendously important to me, as a director and fellow dancer, to provide stipends for my cast. These dancers are amazing and are professionals in the field, making a living in the arts.
OK, Who ARE you anyway???
Evolving Doors Dance is a contemporary modern dance company based in Boulder, Colorado that weaves together dance, dance theatre, props, projected image, text and unique sound scores. In any given season, the company ranges from six to nine dancers. Created projects often explore sociopolitical themes, are laced with neo-feminist ideas, and examine human connection at it's best... and sometimes it's worst. Evolving Doors Dance will premiere "pUsh," a new project for October 2011. This project revolves around the high-stress, high-stakes situations we find ourselves in everyday in society as media consumers, as super-moms, as providers, as walking biological clocks, as computer zombies, as artists, and as a human species balancing the demands of our society and planet with the desires of our inner-psyche.
