Big thanks to all the backers of the Rocked By Women project!
We have until May 22 to go to reach our goal of $6,000 on KickStarter or we get nothing (all pledges are returned).
If you haven’t yet, please consider giving a $10 (or more) contribution. To donate, click here:
We have been touched by the response so far from all who have contributed money and from several of the artists of the Women’s Music Movement who have written to us with their encouragement and thanked us for creating such a production.
Update on the creative side: we’ve been going through some amazing interviews that Holly Near, Judy Dlugacz and Barabara Hamilton-Holway have done for us, looking for “gems” to add to the sound score. The score should be finished by next week as well as most of the choreography. We are moving along with the video score next. Sunday we have a shoot scheduled with some girls and older women guest dancers. Irene Young, who shot many of the old album covers, has graciously given us permission to use these images in the video score for the show. Graphic design is finished for the merchandise like stickers, posters and t-shirts, and they are at the printer. And of course, the dancers continue to spend hours at rehearsal.
And now the money, the Kickstarter campaign: We are at 67% of our funding goal with only 7 days left to raise the remaining $2,000. Thank you all. If you are interested in doing just a little more, you can tell others about this project. We’ve already gotten contributions from people who do not know Sarah or anyone else involved in this show, but they saw a post about it on a friend’s Facebook page or got an email from someone. It does work. Share a link (http://kck.st/g6HuZG) or email along with short a personal note about supporting this project.
Again, we send a big thank you.
