Patrick Scully Movie-The Dance Is Not Over

Please join us in our fundraising efforts as we make an inspiring documentary film about the dancer, choreographer and activist Patrick Scully .  This film will be for anyone who celebrates personal, artistic and sexual freedoms.  Patrick's story is one of growing up gay in the Midwest in the 60's and 70s'.  He graduated from the  University of MN  and found his calling in dance and became a dancer in New York and Germany.

He has danced across the globe and then back to Minnesota. In the 80s, he founded Patrick's Cabaret and for over 20 years, the Cabaret celebrated performers from all walks of racial and sexual identities.  Patrick continues to perform and choreograph at age 65. What sets Patrick apart from other queer artists is, he often performs his stories in rural venues and small towns. This film will cover Scully's career and his recent sold out show at the Guthrie Theater and some of his rural events as well.

We need the funds this year, and next, to green light this film. Your financial contributions will help us to film interviews with Patrick’s collaborators, near and far. This support means so much to us, your assistance helps tell this story of his love and creativity.  For more info,  please like the film's facebook page, facebook film page  or for more info go to the films website,  here .
