You can also buy PHOTO POSTERS of BLACK VELVET by Alex Apt.

And receive printed and framed unique copies, signed by the artist.


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!


If you are unable to contribute financially, we would be grateful if you’d share this page, or help spread the word on Facebook , Instagram, Vimeo, Twitter or via email.

At Sweden, Black Velvet received the AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARD in the Stockholm Fringe Festival 2017. Black Hole received the Cross Award in Italy in 2018. BLACK VELVET was chosen the Best Out Of Town Touring Production in Atlanta in 2018 by ArtsATL.

All of this was possible with the support of almost 200 patrons, supporters, and friends.

Again, thank you for your support.

We are forever grateful for you!
