Crowdsourcing Mornings: Borderline Across Borders

Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Mornings segment!  Every weekday morning, Geek Alabama talks about and features one crowdsourcing project from crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and others.  The hope with Crowdsourcing Mornings is to feature and help a project be successful and reach its fundraising goal.  Please enjoy today’s featured project!

Cesar Brodermann has the opportunity to cross borders with his new work BORDERLINE and to present it at FIDCDMX (International Festival of Contemporary dance in Mexico City)

In order to make this journey happen we humbly ask for your support to raise money for both our domestic and international collaborators and the production. Your support goes directly towards airfare, artist compensation and set.

 

ABOUT  THE WORK – 

(boundless, infinite, limitless, eternal, perpetual, endless, horizonless)

We are conditioned to perceive borders where there may actually not be. If one observes the horizon long enough, the experience may feel like the border between the earth/ocean and the sky dissolves. Therefore, the question arises that if we experience something long enough (such as the body, an artwork, or even a societal structure) are we able to dissolve our learned borders/edges in order to ultimately be free?

BORDERLINE  brings together five performers to explore the distance between themselves and the audience. A study on distance which focuses on the point of view of systems: the systems in which we live, being a number on paper, a number in a passport, etc. We must break the conditioning that creates distances between the self, people, cultures, and humanity.

We are all foreigners, to each other and sometimes even to ourselves.

After being four years with The Batsheva Ensemble, under the direction of Gili Navot, performing works by Ohad Naharin, Sharon Eyal, Noa Zuk, Bobbi Jene Smith & Or Schraiber, as well as developing four creative processes as part of the Batsheva Dancers Create program, Cesar embarks on his own journey as an independent artist. He seeks to make the dream of bringing his work to his hometown and to continue expanding his horizons with his own culture and beyond.

As of June 13th, this project has raised $8,800 of their $10,011 goal. This project has 3 days left to raise the $10,011 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $51, you will get a social media shoutout.  For a pledge of $101, you will get an personal art video.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/borderlineacross/borderline-across-borders?
