I SEE YOU

By Amy De Bhrun

description

TWO WOMEN. A CENTURY APART. SAME STORY.
“I See You” is an insight into the life of Limerick-born Lady Mary Heath, first female commercial pilot and all round trailblazer. Her untold story sank into the walls of history, where she remains to this day.
Set against the backdrop of Modern Mary’s story – pregnant in an abusive relationship.
An immersive and female-led piece of theatre, which breaks the fourth wall. In fact, the only wall in this show is the one between them, encouraging these characters to become creative with their means of communication.
“I See You” explores how if women’s stories continue to go untold and unacknowledged, we will have no role models, and therefore repeat cycles of inequity, inhibiting our ability to evolve and move forward as powerful women in today’s society.

WHAT WILL THE MONEY GO TOWARDS?????????????
- Payment for Cast and Crew: Actors, Director, Producer, Stage Manager, Set Designer, Lighting Designer, Sound Designer.
- Design/Printing of Promotional Materials (including Flyers, posters and a promotional video).
- Costume and props.
- Rehearsal Space.

ANY CHALLENGES???
Funding is essential to get this project on its feet. There are always risks with a theatre production and managing the cast and crew's availability on such a small budget. But we are confident that we're curating a committed team of people, who are passionate about this project.

WHY CROWDFUNDING???
I produced six different one woman shows and toured them internationally from 2011 to 2016.
"I See You" is an ambitious project and needs a strong team of people behind it. In order to get the best people for the job, there needs to be payment offered.
This is an important time for women and we cannot allow for another forgotten woman's story to fade into the walls of history. By funding this project, you will be able to take back the power and allow these amazing women's stories be heard!


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS!!!
I am SO proud of the "I See You" script and cannot wait to produce this exciting new female led piece of theatre.

FUNDIT TARGET HAS BEEN REACHED!!


To all the amazing funders,

We have hit the target!

I am absolutely over the moon and eternally grateful. 

93 people!!! .... 93 people put their belief in me as an artist to tell this story. 

When the system doesn't seem to work, it's the people that rally behind you that truly lift you up.

There's a lot of work to be done, and the fundit page is open until Wednesday morning if anyone is still hoping to donate. 


THANK YOU to everyone. The support has been incredible.

To sign off with some words from the woman herself in my new show I SEE YOU....


"And here we are. Together. In this moment. A vacuous thrill. Excitedly empty. It is all we have. And it will not be forgotten."

Have a lovely weekend x 

The Final Countdown

Dear Funders, 

I cannot express how very grateful I am for your support. I’m so honoured that you have put your trust in me with this creative endeavour and I can’t wait for you to see the final product this May!

We are 87% of the way there, so just need a little push to get us over the line.

So please feel free to share the page far and wide!

A couple of funders who had donated and wanted to add to their donation found the system a little confusing. So just to note if you have already donated and want to add more, you must include the original donation amount... otherwise the system will override it.

For example if I donated €20 and later wanted to add €10, I’d make the donation amount €30. 

If you just put €10. Then the original donation gets cancelled and €10 becomes the new amount. 

 

Confusing i know! So please contact me or the support page if you experience any difficulties. 

 

Thanks again and have a wonderful Paddy’s weekend!
