PROJECT

In 2018, we have been invited to perform and attend artists residencies at Dock 11 – Eden in Berlin , Derida Dance Center in Bulgaria, and Israel.

At each location, we will not only be performing BLACK VELVET, we will also be creating BLACK HOLE, the third work in the triptych.

Because this work is an international project,  involving 07 performers and visual artists from USA, Brazil, South Africa and Israel, your support is essential.

 

All money raised will be used to cover productions, and a fair fee to the artists.

We truly thank Trust for Mutual Understanding for graciously supporting our flight tickets and per diem for residencies in Berlin and Sofia.
