A dance on film, created by Tori Lawrence + Co., that will premiere at the Barnes Foundation on December 14, 2012

Help Tori Lawrence + Co. fund our newest film Elizabeth!

"Elizabeth" is scheduled to premiere at the Barnes Foundation (December 14, 2012 at 6:30PM).  An excerpt will be shown at Philadelphia's Christ Church (October 18-21, 2012).

Set in a historic 18th century home and its surrounding fields, it is a quiet journey between two women, accompanied by the rich soundscapes of musicians Vicki Brown and Mona Chambers. It is for the wanderers of the fields who dwell in sadness, loss, and flight. And it is for those who are drowning, both inside and out.

Our work comes from the bodies, minds, and souls of our collaborators. These artists have put so much of their time, energy and endurance into the work. We ask you to help us thank and honor these amazing dancers, musicians, designers, and filmmakers by contributing to our Kickstarter Campaign:

Original Music: Vicki Brown, Mona Chambers

Editors: Christopher Landy, Tori Lawrence,

Sound Editor: John Baker (Philadelphia Post)

Costume Design: Ellen Fishel

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The filming portion is completed and we have a premiere location and date. The post production and final editing need to be finished by December 14, 2012. So, as long as we stick to our timeline, then we're good. Other challenges may be getting this film accepted into various U.S./International film festivals.
