Dear Friends,

Our goal is to raise $8,000 to support the final production and touring costs for our upcoming performance, LADY PARTS, which will premiere at Chicago’s LINKS HALL September 12-14th, 2014 and then will travel to Portland Oregon’s Headwaters Theater October 3rd-5th, 2014.

The Crowning Series is a trilogy of dance performances that explore themes of sexuality and reproduction. In 2013 we premiered the first chapter of this trilogy, INDUCTION CEREMONY.

Since then we have been building upon that success, digging deeper into our collaborations and building more professional infrastructure. We are currently in the final production stages of the second chapter of this trilogy, LADY PARTS! So far we have received support from Studio Two at Zoomtopia and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, however we need your help with this next stage! All the money raised through Indiegogo will go directly to airfare for the performers, performance venue rental and designer fees. Any amount is an important contribution!

Here is a little bit about the project

LADY PARTS finds inspiration in the experimental behaviors that surround physical transitions and rites of passage. Using choreography, costume, and visual performance, Happydog sets out to simultaneously capture and release the past as they map out moments of irreversible change.

The Impact

Your contribution will extend the life and scope of LADY PARTS through new artistic creations and social exchanges. We've got a great start with Chicago and Portland. Things are underway, and each gift, no matter the size, rewards Happydog with more opportunity to make quality work.

The Exceptional Team of Artists involved

We can't do this alone. Outside of directors Muffie Connelly, Leslie Cuyjet, and Annie Novotny, Happydog is thrilled to work with Portland dancer Ruth Nelson in this new work. We've also enlisted the help of the following talented artists:
