U.S. Tour, Phase One - Laying the Groundwork
Our first step in bringing this amazing company of artists to the United States on tour begins September 2014.
We are raising funds through Kickstarter to bring composer Yannis Pisimisis, Echodrama's Co-Director, to Seattle, Washington to represent his company at the Western Arts Alliance booking conference on September 2-5, 2014. I'll be joining him as well to coordinate contacts and help promote the group in any way I can. Yannis will then fly to Los Angeles for two and a half weeks following the conference to follow up on leads, connect with members of the Greek community and investigate artist residencies in Southern California. In addition, we'll be updating the www.echodrama.gr website to include more English content, and putting together a solid social media plan to get people excited and involved with our progress. We are also in the process of organizing two screenings of videos of the company's live performances in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
For more information on how you can get involved, please visit our Kickstarter page. Thank you for supporting this first phase of an incredibly ambitious and completely attainable project!
U.S. Tour, Phase Two - Echodrama in the U.S.
This is an incredible opportunity for these young dancers and choreographers to be exposed on a world stage... and an equally great opportunity for cultural exchange. Greece is going through arguably one of its most challenging times in modern history. The success of this company, given the crippling financial situations of Greek audiences, venues and producers, is a testament to the quality of Echodrama's productions and the energy and tenacity of its artistic team.
We hope you'll help us bring these amazing artists to the U.S.
Thank you again for your support!
