In 2018, we were able to perform and attend artists residencies in Berlin, Bulgaria, Italy, and Israel. At each location, we performed BLACK VELVET and also created BLACK HOLE, the third work in the triptych.
This is an independent project and we were only able to do so because of the generous support of many individuals and institutions.
We are so thankful for your ongoing interest and support in helping us reach diverse audiences all over the world.
We are asking for a donation of any size to help support performances we will soon be holding at BAM Fisher in Brooklyn (May 2019), Art Residencies, and Workshops in Italy and Berlin during the summer.
Because our work is international and involves 11 artists from all over the world, your support is essential.
All funds will be used to cover flight tickets, accommodations, and a fair fee for the artists.
Please consider helping us to continue our work!
