Before the sands of time
In lands undefined
Did dwell two friends, two states of mind
the Dancer and the poet.

The Phoenix and the crow is a mystical tale set in a fictional land of wealthy merchants, warriors and Dark Dancers. While her friend the poet spectates from the shadows, the dancer’s pursuit of adulation leads her to an empty victory. A chance encounter with a courtesan and a warrior challenge her to shed layers of her identity and find her authentic expression. She discovers that the limelight pales in comparison to her inner light.

I’m sure we have all felt the fear and hesitation of pursuing our passion. Personally, at times this fear has been debilitating and held me back from doing what I love and this was the inspiration for this piece.

Before taking it on tour around the world I am keen to breathe life into it with masterful performances in Edinburgh and with your backing this dream is closer than I had ever imagined. This adventure we are about to embark on requires a lot of support and anything you can offer will help towards making this vision a reality.

The funds will be used to support the following:

– Travel to and from London and Scotland for cast and crew $1500
– Rehearsal venue hire $1500
– Costumes $2000
– Accommodation for our actors $2500
– Press and Marketing $2000

After many years of pursuing my love of performance arts, acting, dancing and presenting, I’ve finally delved into the realm of writing. For the last four years I have been busily extracting images from my mind and putting them on paper and now it’s time to share them with a live audience!

I’m sure we have all felt the fear and hesitation of pursuing our passion. Personally, at times this fear has been debilitating and held me back from doing what I love and this was the inspiration for this piece.
