Thank you indiegogo supporters!!!
Inspired by Chekhov's The Seagull with elements of Ginsberg's Kaddish, BirdShit is a multimedia performance piece that combines theater, dance, video, live and pre-recorded music, and a few surprise elements.
BirdShit has been commandeered by artist and musician, Nina Ljeti, choreographer, Chloe Kernaghan, and NYU Graduate Film students Joshua Richards, Zach Kershberg and Tine Thomasen, under the guidance of James Franco.
Two performances will take place in New York City on April 7th.
Your contributions have helped fund this spectacular collaboration. Here are just a few things that your donations are being used for:
-THE PROJECTORS In order to utilize our unique performance space, we need big, bright, beautiful projectors to do this. Those are expensive! Additionally, we need a switcher board and wonderful, specially trained operators to make it all work together.
-THE STAGE Another special element to this performance is our stage. The stage will be made of plexiglass so that we can film our dancers and action from below. Additionally we have to transport the plexiglass to and from the performance space.
-CREW FEES We cannot make this show happen without a lovely crew behind it--projectionists, wardrobe designers, lighting designers, sound designers.
