Project Description

  • We have received the incredible opportunity to present a new work, Still Life, at Gibney Dance in New York City June 27-29, 2019 as part of Gibney's Performance Opportunity Project. Our Women Before Us is an artist collective aimed at creating performance & educational opportunities for young people to share their stories & voice across an expansive repertoire of trans-disciplinarian art installation projects throughout the country.
  • Our budget of $5,000 for the current production, Still Life is as follows: $4,000 for space rental & working insurance costs, plus $500 in costs for technical support, talent, production, & design. And, $500 to produce a workshop in conjunction with the event (more below). The performance will be a ticketed event from which all proceeds received go to support participating artists & future OWBU projects.
  • We are thrilled to be offering a workshop as part of the Still Life installation. It aims to provide opportunities for participants to create and collaborate in a supportive, immersive environment. This will be a free workshop for artists of all socioeconomic backgrounds interested in interdisciplinary creative process.
  • Help us reach this goal by Memorial Day May 27, 2019! New rewards will be added as the campaign continues. Thank you so much for your support.
  • Our Women Before Us is a collective composed of Megan Pinto, MFA (playwright and poet), Danielle Muzina, MFA (painter and poet), Sonja Petermann, BFA (printmaker and dancer), and Kathleen Dalton, LMSW (choreographer and social worker). The collective teaches transdisciplinary arts workshops and creates immersive fine art and performance installation projects. Most recently, the collective created an exhibit for Cleveland, Ohio’s Rooms to Let Festival and collaborated to produce Pinto’s play ‘Winter In Eden’ which was seen at Dixon Place this past May.
