Help Commission the Quarry Project

Photographer: Julia Barstow  /  Dancer: Amy LePage

Since clearing the initial hurdle of access permission to the Wells Lamson as the site for a new dance/theatre project, I and my core production partners have been taking the next steps.

Currently, we are gathering people to focus on particular branches of the project: Media, Fundraising, Technical, Administration, Education, Community, History, Institutional Partnerships, and Production; so many layers in this three-phase project, all important to the stability and success of the final performance.

In preparation for the coming summer of further testing and refinement in the Quarry, my collaborating artists and I are working on choreography, sound, lighting, set, and costume designs. It is my goal that by the summer, I am focusing the majority of my energy and attention on the creation and direction of the piece.

Last year, two people gave money towards this project (even though it was still just a desired dream) which allowed us to pay for materials and construction of the prototype stages as well as initial research into appropriate grants. Now, with permission in hand, I am turning to you to help jump-start the Phase Two budget of $106,500.
