ZESTcreative Fringe Show!!

Hello Lovely People!
We are so happy to be bringing a brand new show for the Toronto Fringe festival 2022 to you all! We are a collective of movers, shakers and noise makers who have been tirelessly working on producing our new work: Between Root and Bloom, a dance and music collaboration that explores identity, personal history and the fragments that make ourselves whole.
About the show:
Between Root and Bloom is a uniquely creative collaboration between dancers and musicians exploring identity, personal history, and the nature of growth.
Collaboration is at the heart of our work and is what makes this production special. ZESTcreative is not just a group of contemporary dancers who have hired jazz musicians but rather a collective where the responsibility of creation and production is shared equally amongst all the artists. There is no one choreographer, no one musical director; every member both creates and performs. The two art forms share a common language, and we aspire to challenge the conventions of dance and music creation.
Also, we've been told a fun angle is that two of the long-time members of the collective are in a relationship and that we should play this up.
What your donations will go towards:
In short, your donation will go to paying the wonderful artists and crew that are involved.
Making a show is a lot. We have all put in countless hours. We rehearse and create multiple times a week. In our downtime, we think about the show and plan our next steps. It is fun, fulfilling, and all-consuming. But creating a show is expensive. Between equipment rentals, rehearsal space costs, costumes, programs, flyers (the list goes on...), and most importantly, paying people for their time, any artistic endeavour can quickly become a significant financial burden.
We ask for your support because this is a show we all believe in. We are putting in all of our years of training and experience into doing a project we are proud of and will hopefully speak to you.
Who are we?
We are ZESTcreative! We are not a dance company or a band - we are an artist collective that combines dance and music (and eventually all arts!) into one cohesive, collaborative super-group. This year, our cast is Eva Connelly-Miller (she/her), Carman Chan (she/her), Mary Patsiatzis (she/her), Hannah Barstow (she/her), Racha Moukalled (she/her) and Julien Bradley-Combs.
We appreciate all the support that is given to us. Please share this campaign with your friends and family, and definitely COME SEE THE SHOW! We hope it will be as special to you as it is for us.
