As announced in my previous post, I am embarking on a new artistic project – the creation of a short contemporary dance film with filmmaker Christopher Di Nunzio! Deviation, Twice Removed abstractly explores the concept of genetic memory through the interactions of two dancers – the light and dark, the echoes, the inevitability of what came before.
The project has received partial funding from the New England Foundation for the Arts’ New England Dance Fund, with generous support from the Aliad Fund at the Boston Foundation. This grant is crucially covering the filming and production costs, including equipment, labor, editing, artistic fees, etc.
I am fundraising an additional $1,500 between now and June 22nd to cover:
- Dancers’ Fees
- Musician/Composer’s Fee (I am collaborating with violinist Josh Knowles on composing an original score for the film!)
- Transportation Costs
If you are interested and able to make a contribution, donations can easily be made online through IndieGoGo: https://igg.me/at/deviation-twice-removed
Every gift is so deeply appreciated and goes a long way to making this project the best it can be! Four working artists in dance, film, and music will ultimately benefit, and the film will be a one-of-a-kind piece of work and an accessible way to engage with contemporary dance!
