Weʼre raising £200 to help fund the beginning of Francesca's VR and Physical Theatre company, Intensiv.
- London, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I'm Francesca Marago, I've recently graduated from a degree in Drama and Performance and have always been interested in theatre since the age of 5 (Cliche I know, but bare with me).
Over the last year, I had set up a theatre company as part of a unit on my course. As Artistic Director I had the vision to combine Virtual Reality technology with Physical Theatre. Due to it's success, interest and support from local organisations I've been encouraged to continue with the company and GO FOR IT! I have a keen interest in combining new technological advances with the traditional modes of theatre in order to create a new experience for audiences to encounter.
Intensiv Theatre Company is set up to tackle current events that occur in society today and create VR simulations in order to inform people of these events through an artistic lens. Hoping to bring about an awareness and disscussion about current issues that are often swept under the carpet.
However, due to the high cost in VR technology and the general expenses used to set up a company, I don't have enough funds to help me get started and help the progression of the company in the long run! Could you help?
Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance!
