Get us to the UNAM Theatre Finals!

$3,237 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 2 months
Created November 12, 2018
We are an ensemble of international theatre artists studying at Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre in Blue Lake, California.  Our original theatre production, CITIZENS OF NOWHERE, has been selected as one of four finalists and participating productions for the International University Theatre Festival (Festival Internacional de Teatro Universitario), presented by Teatro UNAM in Mexico City. 

This original tragedy was devised as part of our second-year studies, written and staged by the eight of us over the course of seven weeks under the guidance of and in collaboration with Dell'Arte faculty members Sayda Trujillo and Laura Munoz. The story surrounds Jama, a teenage refugee who is the second generation born within a city of exiles. When the rations are cut, what lengths will she go to protect her family and save her people? A story of soldiers and the wall they uphold, of love amidst the ruins of war -- the inescapable fate of our heroine unfolds through the course of this classically modeled tragedy. 

The festival is able to provide food, accommodation and local transport during our visit, however, they are unable to fly us to Mexico City. We hope to raise the funds needed for travel to and from the festival, with this GoFundMe campaign, along with two benefit performances hosted by Dell'Arte International. 

Please support us in any way you can! Share this page, like our campaign, tell your friends and donate today! Thank you for being a part of this exciting and meaningful opportunity.

We've reached our goal! Thank you to everyone who has donated. The team is getting ready to begin our adventures and will be traveling to Mexico City on February 10th. The page will still be active until then, but any money we raise will be donated to Syrian Refugees via a charity of our choosing. We also wanted to thank The Costume Box in Eureka for donating special effect blood to our cause. This generous donation has saved us money that will now also be going to our transportation and accommodation. So thank you again to everyone who has supported us along this journey.
