Men's Circle

Campaign Ends June 30, 2018

We dreamt big and made Men's Circle, a 90-minute critically acclaimed dance-theatre play.

"nothing can prepare the viewer for the gradual elegance and intense poignancy that evolves... The vulnerability we are often taught to erase in men is fully realized throughout..." Bateman Reviews

"The characters are drawn with sharp and clear strokes, and the performers bring them to identifiable and vivid life. We care about all of them and struggle with them to be better, to heal and to grow. The sessions have a raw improvised feel to them, as they would in real life. They are punctuated by Rea's choreography, as the dancers express body releasing, liberation and healing. The music, especially the violin and piano played on stage live by Natterer and Nakhaei, provides punctuation dramatically and is lively and beautiful." EviDance

Our box office was not what we expected. We are raising $6000, between now and our June 30 year-end, to help cover the cost of the production so that we can keep our doors open
