CHARITABLE DONATION __ DANCE — The AFROFUTURISM Series, choreographer Andre Zachery and his company Renegade Performance Group 11/4-7/15

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-afrofuturism-series#/story

The incredibly gifted dancer/choreographer Sarah Chien alerted us to this worthy cause:

I’m writing to you to ask you to consider contributing to The AFROFUTURISM Series, a work that I’ve been collaborating closely on since 2013 with choreographer Andre Zachery and his company Renegade Performance Group. Afrofuturism is a movement about collectively addressing issues on race, identity, gender through performance. Andre’s blend of movement, multimedia, and music is unlike anything else going on in NYC and we’re fundraising for a true home season in Brooklyn: four full evenings of our work Nov 4-7. Its work like this that makes me proud to be investing my time, energy and passion into New York City- I’d be honored if you join the movement with me!

 

This time, we are using a flexible funding platform (we keep everything we earn regardless of goal) and we are producing the fundraiser ourselves, rather than as part of a larger festival.

 

As with all crowdfunding, please share this appeal through your networks- I know that your time spent sharing is also a contribution. And feel free to contribute at any level- there are some really artsy merch perks at higher levels, but any amount is appreciated, truly.

Thank you so much for your continued support and I hope to see you at the show!

 

Best,

Sarah

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Renegade Performance Group (RPG) is presenting The AFROFUTURISM Series with two unique full-length programs: “Untitled Distances” and “The Inscription Project,” introducing dance and technology as a vehicle of AFROFUTURISM.  This will be the first RPG season in our home borough- Brooklyn. The company season runs for four nights, November 4-7, 2015, at the Irondale Center in Fort Greene. AFROFUTURISM as a movement, expresses new narratives, ideologies, and symbolisms of Black culture from a global perspective.

RPG launched the AFROFUTURISM Series in January 2014 to be an ongoing project investigating the presence of Blackness into and beyond 21st Century techno-culture and society. It is a platform where themes and contexts of Black diasporic culture will be remixed and reimagined through contemporary dance, digital projections, and interactive sound environments.

WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET

This season is entirely self-produced! That’s why we need your support to make the magic happen.

Our GOAL is $15,000.

The funds from this campaign support every step of this project’s process:

  • securing rehearsal and creative space,
  • printing publicity,
  • obtaining production equipment,
  • cover the cost of theater,
  • pay the collaborators and performers, and
  • video documentation of the performances

WE WANT TO LOVE YOU BACK

Contributors at certain levels receive unique incentives such as RPG phonecases, posters, vintage Haitian masks, the personal portfolio of André M. Zachery, and inside access to RPG.

The performers of RPG represent the diversity of Brooklyn in nationality, identity, gender, and dance backgrounds. RPG is building a new future with every artistic venture.
