Purchasing forest Mbyá
Sagittaria und Asociación Impulso Solidario
The Atlantic forests play a crucial role in the biodiversity and climate of the region and of our planet. The Mbyá’s entire existence revolves around the forest, and the way they treat it is highly sustainable. However, for quite a while now, the indigenous people have been driven out of the forest by large landowners. Your donation will help repurchase the forest, so that it stays in the Mbyá’s safe hands.
Get out of misery thanks to a carpenter training after Swiss-model.
This is the goal of the project-responsible organization Gira Solidário, which offers each year up to 15 young people from the favelas a chance to overcome poorness. An apprenticeship requires CHF 5'000.- per year and person.
With this crowd-funding project we would like to be able to finance up to two apprenticeships for one year.
Kubur is an Indonesian theater group which has been active in Jakarta for over thirty years now. The plays are currently written by Yustiansyah Lesmana, student and director of the group, and are telling about the life in the 28 million metropolis.
Haifa, Ratu, Diah, Saring and Hendra are the current line-up of the group and worked throughout the last year on cultural diversity through improvisations and intense rehearsals - the result is a 60 minutes' play which has its premiere in Jakarta by the end of may.
To avoid language barriers, the whole play is non-dialogue - everything is done by music, dance and body language.
Creation for Douban
From December 21 to January 4, 2018, I was invited to Jerusalem to create a choreography with the local dance company DOUBAN. The company under the artistic direction of dancer Hanna Tams was founded in 2013 with the aim to promote professional dance of the Palestinian youth and to establish common grounds with other cultures within our world. The choreography will be part of the full-length show "SALAL", which will be performed in January 2018 in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth and Ramallah. The main sponsor of the Company is the Collège des Frères de La Salle of Jerusalem (CdF) and a handful of individuals who believe in and support the idea of DOUBAN. The company provides me travel and accommodation, but is not financially able to pay me a salary. For this purpose, I am now addressing you and you have the opportunity to support me and my work with DOUBAN Dance Company. It is important for me to be able to continue my work in Palestine, which started in 2011, and to support the dancers in their efforts for professionalism and development.

Dance studio in Geneva
We want to create a space where dance enthusiasts - professionals or amateurs - can meet and enrich the practice of their art through these exchanges.
Thus, we wish to establish a dance studio in Geneva that which will serve as a meeting venue, host our activities - conferences, workshops - and will welcome in optimal conditions Romandie artists who need a place to create or rehearse.
