The stories we hear shape our realities. The stories we tell shape us. Having the tools to narrate our story in this moment of unrest is both history-making and future-making. As we approach the new year, we’re CALLING IN your support for IN TANDEM ARTS and our intentions for new work in the new year.
It’s a critical moment to do the work we do. After years of increased individualism and damaging social isolation, we need ways to come together and recalibrate … equalize … sync … reconnect. In Tandem Arts is in the business of togetherness and we are committed to making it happen. The performing arts provide a joyful vehicle to step into a space of deep collaboration and therefore powerful connection. We generate new work with and within community. We do not create art that sets us apart, we create art that brings people together. We believe that singing should not center individual talent, but should uplift the group. Dancing should not demonstrate precision, but should invoke embodied oneness. And that storytelling is the greatest tool we have for transformative change.
We create spaces to play with combinations of these powerful influences. We are participatory. We are interdisciplinary. We make new work. We are asking for your support to create these participatory spaces. Please make a tax-deductible donation to the Future Fund and support our upcoming programs. Within the last year we mounted 2 full-scale productions (X-Votive & TIPS), led 3 school residencies, launched 4 new community programs, and established Epoch Generation, our performance incubator for teens. We need your support to sustain these participatory programs! With your contribution, we will raise $4,000 by 12/31.
Our programs are designed to serve intergenerational cohorts; our services are inclusive of learners from primary school to adult. Example? Did you catch our immersive video installation X-VOTIVE at Burlington’s Discover Jazz Fest? If not, WATCH HERE on a chilly night and THINK. What if the themes we elucidated in X-VOTIVE — Applied Futures, Climate Justice, and The Education of Imagination — are areas that we throw focus on in our education programs this year? You ready? Let’s do it!
