They are an award-winning, exceptional and amazing all-female dance troupe. SIX international women who all offer skill, killer jazz and amazing lindy hop. The problem is that some want out.
Thanks to the artistry, help and generosity of many, we have the opportunity to build on our sold-out draft work 'Swing, Sister, Swing' in July 2019. We will create an original 70-minute dance show from the story up: six powerful women with a banging original score (composed by Two Twenty Two) exploring what it means to be a woman and alone in the world of Lindy Hop. This is our most ambitious undertaking. We would like to make a splash and be able to take this show on the road. We are thrilled to be presenting Swing, Sister, Swing in Studio One on 12th & 13th July at Rich Mix, the culture capital of East London. We would love your help.
All proceeds of our crowdfunder will go towards the musicians' fees to record our original score.
We have smashed our existing goal for a Little Big Band, but we are an ambitious bunch and it is Two Twenty Two's dream to assemble and record a kick-ass 17 piece Big Band for this session. We are £500 away from this goal.
Want to sponsor a musician or a section? It's £150/player, including our amazing composers.
Whether you can contribute a fiver, or have the means to contribute to a whole section of musicians (who doesn't want to sponsor the sexy sax section?), we welcome and appreciate any amount, and feel so supported by our friends, fellow dancers and peers. We'd also love to see you: join us to toast great music and great art on 12th & 13th July. It promises to be an exciting journey.
