STILL MOTION's TOTAL BUDGET IS $90,000… We were so excited to reach our Kickstarter goal of $25,000 to secure at least part of the production costs; The theatre rental and set, video shoot and costumes THANK YOU!!!!! Now, anything extra we can fund over these next few weeks will help us bring in our lighting designer from Canada, guest artists from NYC (Travel and accommodations), PR, reception for the event and compensate our 22 dancers for their 7 weeks of rehearsal time, 5 days a week for 8 hours a day. (They were doing it out of the goodness of their heart for a minimal fee, but I would LOVE to actually pay the dancers what they deserve!) I am overwhelmed with the outreach of support for Moments Defined! I know this seems like a lot, but I have always set high goals and with your support and love I know we can do it!!! In advance I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!
ABOUT THE SHOW
Moments Defined is a show created around the moments in a person's life, which change, shape, inspire and define us. I believe that each memorable moment in time, the ones that truly transform us, precious or imperfect, leave an everlasting imprint on us, concrete as a snap shot. Moments Defined brings these snap shots to life, raw and real, articulated through movement. I believe that dance moves us to feel deeply, and when expressed honestly it can leave a lasting impression....My wish is to leave a reflection of the complex beauty of these momentous moments on everyone who experiences Moments Defined.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
STILL MOTION is a new dance company mixing the fresh young talent here in Los Angeles with the experience and maturity of guest artists from all over North America. I feel so blessed to have worked with such gifted performers in my dance career. It truly overjoys me that many talented artists/friends have offered, without hesitation, to be a part of MOMENTS DEFINED. My goal is to create a nurturing and loving environment in which allows us to inspire one another, push boundaries and explore movement. I adore the creative process and am surrounded by a group of artists who are fueled by the same desires.
Melanie Moore, Jessica Keller, Chantel Aguirre, Chelsea Thedinga, Amanda Cleghorn, Amber Williams, Will Loftis, Bruce Weber, Will Johnston, Miles Yeung and Jeff Mortensen. Apprentices: Patrick Cook, Jenna Johnson
Kathryn McCormick, Jason Parsons, Kevin Tookey, Heather Lang, Francisco Avina, Anthony Morigerato, Peter Chu, Will Wingfield and Melissa Bourkas.
GOALS WITH FUNDING
My kickstarter goal is to raise $25,000 to pay for the initial costs of putting on MOMENTS DEFINED. Funds will go towards: theatre rental, lighting design, sound design, music composer, costume design, rehearsal space and minimal artists salaries.
Reaching my $25,000 goal will assist me to cover the initial production costs ofMoments Defined . Although this will be a great start in funding ,the entire cost of putting on this premiere performance of Moments Defined will be $90,000. Its all about baby steps, right? That leads me to my next point...
HOW YOU CAN HELP
I would be truly grateful for any amount given towards this production of MOMENTS DEFINED. Reaching this goal will enable me to see my vision brought to life with a possible future tour to the "Great White North". Presenting this show in Canada and coming full circle to where I began my journey would mean the world to me.
NOTE FROM STACEY
Thank you in advance for taking time and investing in my dream. Without you it would not be possible. Whether its $25 or $10,000 I am so extremely grateful and humbled by your help.
