Description

a canary torsi has been invited by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) to reimagine our lastest work Court/Garden (CG) at a historic site for their esteemed River To River Festival at Federal Hall National Memorial in Lower Manhattan, June 19-20, 2015. This site is "the birthplace of American Government" and is where George Washington was inaugurated as president. We are adapting all three acts to its grand marble rotunda, taking all the costumes, cameras and screens, heightening the work's media environment and reimagining the final act. All performances will be FREE to the public! LMCC has offered us full production support and a month-long residency to adapt CG for this new site. But CG is more than costumes, set, lights, camera and action! CG is created by over 15 amazing, dedicated artists and crew each night. We need your support to raise $6,000 to help pay the artists for these performances. Instead of launching another Kickstarter Campaign, we are reaching out to you directly to join us in making this adaptation possible. Please click on the link below to give through our fiscal sponsor, The Field, and your donation will be fully tax-deductible. http://thefield.org/sa/551532 Your support means everything. Thank you.
