WHAT IS «SPICY TUTUBOY INTER-NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC»
«SPICY TUTUBOY INTER-NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC» is a performing arts & transdisciplinary project about national identities, nationalities, nationalisms.
WHAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN DONE?
We have been developing the "Portugal", "Spain" & "France" episodes since the summer 2011 and we have had a première in Toulouse, France in June; after this first performance we have had others in Logroño (June 2012), at Villa-Real Dance Festival, in Castellón (October 2012).
Every Sunday of November we performed at DT Espacio Escénico This is a link, in Madrid.
WHICH FUTURE PERSPECTIVES ARE THERE?
The 5th of June 2013 we will present it at Teatro Arriaga de Bilbao This is a link.
At the end of July 2013 we will perform in Portugal at Center of the Arts of Figueira da Foz, and there are other performances to be confirmed.
AND IN INDIA?
In January-February-March 2013 we have artistic residencies confirmed in India (Udaipur, Pune) and some others to be confirmed (Goa, Bangalore), to develop the "India" phase of «SPICY TUTUBOY INTER-NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC», with several performances in view, as our participation at the AVAYAVA Festival of Pune, at the end of March 2013.
WHAT KIND OF SUPPORTS DO WE HAVE, OR ARE WE EXPECTING TO HAVE?
We are looking for several sources of funding and financial support (Matadero de Madrid, Instituto Camões & Fundação Gulbenkian - Portugal), to try to face part of the expenses that this Project generates, and for the moment we can count with the one month residency of Millenium Gallery in Udaipur and a similar one at the Space Studio and Avayava Festival of Pune, which offer to us the space for the artistic residency, as well as the lodging for all the project team members, and also the participation in various cultural activities in close contact with the local communities.
And we are counting on You, Friends, colleagues, known and unknown people, SPICY TUTUBOY’s fans, and every illuminated soul, interested in Art & Culture!
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS CAMPAIGN?
This Verkami’s campaign has the object of helping us finance the production expenses related with the "India" phase of the project: the creation and production expenses (set and costume materials, construction and confection, etc...), the traveling of the team members (4 people) between Spain/Portugal and India, as well as networking and maintenance expenses that we could have to face during our staying in India.
SPICY TUTUBOY received his first name «Spicy» in India, country that he had the honour of visiting... and since then a deep Love unites him to this subcontinent, with its richness and variety of traditions and culture, its endless artistic forms, its colors, aromas and of course, spices!
«SPICY TUTUBOY INTER-NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC - INDIA» will be something unforgetable that SPICY TUTUBOY will share with all of You!
Help us to make it happen! Thank You!
