MAYHEM 2017

Greetings dancers, artists, patrons and scoli-warriors!
Is it really MAYHEM time again already?!.... Yup!

 

Every May, Marta Marta MAYHEM, our annual fundraising event, has entertained our community far and wide through performances, parties and other pranks.

 

This year, we are keeping it simple.  We want to simply say THANK YOU for your past support of Marta Marta Productions and the Twisted Outreach Project for Backcare and Scoliosis (MMP•TOPS). Thanks to your help, the company continues to grow in new and exciting directions. As a multi-disciplinary non-profit dedicated to both dance-based performing arts and body work, our creative approach to movement in all its forms is what bridges our communities.

 

Driven by the passion and vision of our Artistic Director Martha Carter, highlights of our upcoming year include a NEW performance work in process by Carter for 2018; a new MMP initiative to offer the dance community subsidized studio space through our Artist in Residency program; ongoing educational workshops, classes and retreats in Vancouver and beyond; and our continued groundbreaking work to develop a unique scoliosis support website.

 

And now we will simply ask, would you please consider supporting us this year?

 

Your donation will help both MMP and TOPS fulfill their mandate to bring quality programs to arts audiences, movement students and the general public alike. All donations will receive a 100% tax donation receipt.

 

When you give...

  • $20, someone with back care needs can have access to scoliosis-focused movement workshops;

  • $60, an up-and-coming performing artist can receive a week of subsidized access to studio space;

  • $100, a teen learning to manage their scoliosis can receive a free Yoga for Scoliosis consultation;

  • $500, we can invite and host movement professionals to lead engaging workshops and retreats.

Thank you in advance– every bit helps.

MMP RESIDENCY on SALTSPRING

Date: 
2014

"...the point of the work (Speaking in Ligeti) is to use dance to make the music not only accessible in human terms, but to help it emerge as downright beautiful. The audience was on the edge of their seats. I don't know when we have last had such a standing ovation for "new music", never mind that blending it with contemporary dance is not exactly commonplace. Ponderous the work ain't - tender and lyrical in parts, downright funny in others, intensely emotional where it needs to be, and endlessly surprising - there is not a moment when our attention isn't absolutely engaged.
