New Visions / New Voices

I’m wracked with nerves and anxiety and electric shivering excitement.

I’m leaving on Thursday the 21st for the US. I’m going to be a part of New Visions | New Voices at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. While I’m there I’m going to meet fellow writers from around the world, see brain expanding theatre, and hear my play – The Underground Library – done with American accents.

This is a favorite play of mine – a South African action/scifi about a young girl caught between an oppressive government and mysterious hacker group. (You can listen to it HERE.)

The amazing cast and director of the reading we did at Alexander Upstairs

The problem is that I don’t have any funding and those randelas don’t go as far as they used to when buying dollars. The Kennedy Center is putting up accommodation but that’s all the support I can rely on at the moment.

So please give me money so I don’t come back so thin I’m transparent. And so I can maybe pay back my flights please. And so I can pay Maggie and Jamie to look after Alexander Upstairs while I’m away.

In the Kickstarter spirit I can make your generosity benefit you too. In August I’ll run two courses – one on Arts Marketing and Producing I developed while a Business Arts South Africa fellow and lecturer on Professional Practice at City Varsity, and one on Play writing that’s based on workshops I’ve done for schools and festivals. Doesn’t appeal? Something you’d like I can help with? Short play? Limerick? Poster? Putting up shelves? Carrying furniture? Let me know. I’m flexible and can reach high cupboards.

Just pop some money in my FNB cheque account: JP Keevy 602 310 805 86, branch 201 511 – use your name as reference then mail me about the workshops (or whatever else you want. Like I said – flexible).

Thank you so much for reading,

JK
