"FIGURE IT OUT" is a new dance piece, choreographed by Anna Gaciarz, which will premiere in September 2013, as a part of Dublin Fringe Festival.
Who we are:
We are 50% Male Experimental Theatre, a Dublin-based collective operating under the stewardship of choreographer and dance artist Anna Gaciarz. The company was founded as an artistic experiment in 2009, born of our shared desire to explore the realms of contemporary dance and physical theatre.
We have presented three full works to date: "Peter Pans" (2009), "Seekers" (2011) and "Chemistry" (2012).
"FIGURE IT OUT" is a new and exciting dance piece in which we aim to explore the complexities of woman's nature and female identity.
It's been said that a woman is like an ocean - unpredictable and mysterious. With this new work, we plan to venture beyond the rocky tides of the surface to see what secrets reside in the depths below.
The piece will be performed by Anna Gaciarz, Ruth Shine, Dagmara Jerzak and Elena Degtyareva and will be accompanied by an original sound score and live music, courtesy of composer Przemyslaw Lozowski and his band.
We are especially excited to 'embrace our roots' by staging the show in the stark and spacious D-Light Studios, which has served as a home of sorts for 50% Male since we first convened there four years ago and began our journey together.
Why we need your help:
"FIGURE IT OUT" is our most ambitious project yet, fusing contemporary dance, physical theatre, live music and film. The project combines the work and talents of many individuals and we are delighted to have been granted a two-week Dance Ireland Residency, during which we will work to develop the piece in advance of its premiere at Dublin Fringe Festival 2013.
We are asking for your generous support to help us cover the costs of production, transport of sets and equipment, technical fees, marketing and artist fees. 50% Male continues to exist thanks to the support that we receive from our audience and anything you can offer WILL MAKE a difference in making this next exciting chapter in our journey a reality.
