Kickstarting Article19

Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

The fund raising game is not something we, here in TheLab™, ever imaged entering into. We've survived this long on very little, as do many working in the wide world of dance, but at this moment in time needs must.

So, we have put our plans on hold for a fundraising campaign to harness the power of the sun to give free energy to everybody in the world because A: we don't know science and B: it would probably cost $46Trillion, which is more money than is currently in existence.

Apart from one occasion three years ago Article19 does not receive any public funding and nobody gets paid to do this but it does cost a lot of money to produce all of the content. So we are kickstarting (you see what we did there?) the next year and beyond on Article19 with a fundraising push. The money will be used to create video features, the written content and pay for all of the services that keep Article19 online.

We have set a target of £3,000 but the more money we raise the more content we can produce. The more money we raise the more work we can film created and performed by new and existing dance companies across the UK and possibly beyond.

On average a video feature can cost £200 to create and that's just the logistical costs. We will also be able to create more features, blogs, editorials and deliver more auditions and other notices to our readers, new and old alike.

Article19 is fundraising to, essentially, keep Article19 online, produce a lot more content for our readers and, with a little luck, make it an even stronger voice in the wide and often wacky world of dance, both online and offline.

If you can help then that would be great. If you can't then we understand, but do mention our campaign to others who might be interested. We promise to get back to our free energy for all idea as soon as we pass "Introduction to Quantum Physics".
