OK, the Shakedown Dance Collective got a CAF grant of $1700 (Thank you BAC) to invade the NYC Transit Museum with a community dance spectacular - BUT - It ain't enough to fund the whole production. You guessed it (drum roll) crowd-funding! (sigh)
We're shooting for a quick and dirty $1000 (or more), the bare minimum to get us to the performance alter. This money will complete our budget for costumes, props, rehearsal space and a worthy stereo system.
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE: People from all walks of life will perform choreography based on real transit moments collected from the general public- including but not limited to:
Mobile Make-Up Application
Pushing, Pulling, Sleeping
Gross Things on the Ground
The performances will happen on the platform and in the historic subway cars of the NYC Transit Museum (once the Court Street subway stop in downtown Brooklyn).
Many Many Many Thank yous.
