EXTENDING THE STORY! (video commissions from kickstarter)

Hello friends! Thank you for EXTENDING THE STORY.

Your support for Genderfantasy via our KICKSTARTER campaign is inspiring and I want to thank you by giving something back.

Not only is your donation supporting Genderfantasy on stage it will also help me continue my exploration of the themes and process used to create the stage show. You will help guide me into further inquiry of the themes and process of Genderfantasy, in essence you are EXTENDING THE STORY!

Here’s how it works.

I will make a specialized video vignette in appropriate make-up and costumery and perform improvisations and choreography with the video’s length based on your donation amount. This video will be dedicated to you and to a beloved queer spirit/ancestor.

You might ask “Why are you dedicating MY video to a dead queer person?” I’m glad you ASKED! All of Genderfantasy is dedicated to the memory of the courageous queer spirits who have made history, been ignored by history and are history.  By connecting someone who is living to an artist/person from the past I become a medium collaborating with the language of the living and the language of the dead. It is through this process that Genderfantasy was created and it is through this process I honor those who have come before me.

I would not be here creating Genderfantasy without the courageousness and brilliance of queer artists, provocateurs, radicals, and lovers. Artists who embodied radical ideas and helped shape the evolution of society and the nature of gender and gender performance as we know it. Those misfits and two-spirits, lady boys and deviants, rebels and innovators inspire me.

I will research the artist/ancestor you are paired with (or the one you request) to add to the texture of the video.
