Itâ€™s now less than three weeks until I will be performing as part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase at Summerhall and I am starting to get really excited!!
To support my showings up in Edinburgh Iâ€™ve started a crowd-funding campaign. In order to perform six times, I will have to pay for a stage manager, a technician, space hire, travel expenses and accommodation, technical equipment, marketing, fees for external performers live via skype connection and for FRAGGLE, the Scottish Eagle Owl which will be performing alongside me. And FRAGGLE will be lovely for sure but he doesnâ€™t come cheapâ€¦.
Luckily I have been able to secure funding support from several arts organisations such as the brilliant In Between Time, ICIA Bath and Theatre Bristol. Some income will also be accumulated through ticket sales. However, I have estimated that I will need another Â£2000 to break even, and that is without paying myself a fee.
So thatâ€™s where I was hoping I could ask YOU for help. My aim is to generate Â£1000 through crowd funding. It would be amazing if you could step in and help. Whatever you can donate will make a huge difference. Actually weâ€™ve had a great start and 14 lovely people have already pledged money, all in all Â£475. So if you could help donate towards the missing Â£525, that would be soooo nice. Anyway, all details can be found on the Sponsume website HERE. Thatâ€™s all!
