Hi!

I'm Allie, and this is my project!

Why am I doing this?

I love TV, theatrical music, fantasy and sci-fi. I love following characters for long periods of time and choosing whether I want to watch for 45 minutes or a whole day. I love music that lives, along with costumes and sets, in the greater fabric of a story. And I love fantastical things and imaginary worlds.

While I appreciate the musical theater traditions I was raised with, I want to do something different than the typical theatrical music that appears spontaneously, seems out of context, and sometimes detracts from the drama of the story.

And I really don't love media standards that exclude groups of people and progressive ideas, or perpetuate harmful stereotypes. 

I'm also a nerdy, feminist, Norse pagan. Thus...

What am I doing?:

Vǫlva Productions, a socially conscious production company, is born! And with it:

Hetaira, my epic musical historical fantasy action drama. Labels are hard, especially when you're trying to make up your own genre. I guess you could say it's kind of a musical superhero show, since most of those have varied backstories grounded in myth and fantasy. It's has action, romance, history, intrigue, philosophy, magic, music, and a lot more.

How am I doing this?

This Patreon is in support of Vǫlva Productions and its projects, like Hetaira, which is currently being produced as a podcast with episodes being released every other week, and behind-the-scenes in-betweenisodes being released on the opposite weeks.

I am pouring every ounce of experience I have as an opera singer, ethnomusicology enthusiast, fantasy, history, and philosophy nerd, and overall enthusiastic multi-disciplinary artist into this project. The podcast makes it affordable, but the music production and voice acting are expensive and I wasn't willing to give those parts up, because they are the soul of who I am as an artist and what this project is.

When you contribute, your tips go directly to collaborators whom I bring on the show, both musicians and actors, to help bring the story to life. Without you, this show would be nothing.

I'm looking forward to going together on the journey towards making this project the epic musical fantasy production I know it can be. I hope you're in for a ride!

Thank you so much for your support <3
