YOUR SUPPORT WILL BRING THIS WORK TO LIFE

Beyond the Box is a dance series that revolves around perceptions of time, space, and gender using the traditional aesthetics of Kabuki Theater and Japanese classical dance (nihon buyo). This project addresses ideas of power, the presentation of women, and the perception of self. The newest iteration, Beyond the Box III, will integrate contemporary instrumentation with traditional Japanese music, stage the work in an intimate setting that breaks the ‘fourth wall,’ and incorporate live puppetry drawing upon Japanese and contemporary styles.

This performance will feature traditional costumes, props, puppet materials, musicians, dancers, graphic designers, rehearsal space, scenery, videographers,… and YOU. We invite you to join us by making a contribution to our cause that will make Beyond the Box possible. Your support will enable us to transform this living traditional art form and make it applicable to the 21st century.

How it works

3AP is a unique crowdfunding platform with a built-in match that helps Chicago artists finance new creative work. Once 1/3 of the funding goal has been reached through your donations, 3Arts pledges 1/3 in the form of a matching grant. If the to- tal funding goal is reached within the allotted time frame, all contributions, including the 3Arts match, goes towards the completion of the project in the form of a grant from 3Arts. Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
