ME. ART. PATREON. AND YOU.

I'm here on Patreon growing my badass tribe of truth-freakers.
And asking for support to reach 10,000 women LIVE through my performance art.

If you're here reading this, we're prob already connected and you know about my passion for all things art but you might not know about Patreon and what it is. 

Below is the scoop on who I am, why I'm here on the Patreon platform, and how you + I can be a stand for women's voices. Like, together :)

MY WHY
Two words: Fierce Feminine.

I'm a poet-actress-artist-producer-messenger here to make art on behalf of Her. And by Her, I mean Woman. Sultry, spicy, sensitive Woman. Her voice is needed in art and media. I am one reflection of Her voice and I will freak it and funk it till the day I die.


MY WHAT

To reach 10,000 women LIVE through touring Dirty Me Divine; that's my auto-biographical one-woman show about sexuality, survival, and Soul. It's the story of how I traveled life boxed in by society's labels of the Good Girl, the Plastic Barbie, the Huntress, the Slut. Ultimately it's about connecting and accepting the many faces of the Feminine + finding a way to honor my Voice in a world that values security and obedience.

This show came to life because it was supported through kickstarter and my beautiful community. From that funding, I was able to create a website and new branding + invest in production, rehearsal, and theatre + eventually sell out a preview and full-length show in LA to rave reviews.

Now, I'm aching to tour.

I wanna see, feel, and be with you in the sacred temple called theatre;
where the mask is ripped off
and every secret crevice of my soul is exposed
(I know, DRAMATIC).

But hey, after yearsssssss of being a timid gal that was ashamed of my life (namely of being a stripper on my path as artist), I am now in let's-do-this-shit-make-this-art kinda mode. I'm hungry to travel the land on behalf of my story and in reverence of all women's stories.


WHY WOMEN'S STORIES MUST BE TOLD
Hmmmm..... to put this in a nutshell..... there's a very narrow representation of women in media, marketing, and movies. It's the Madonna/Whore/Good Girl/Bad Girl Split: a simplistic p.o.v that keeps our voices stuck and our mind f*cked.

I wanna be part of the un-stucking. 

Without the dimensional, full, freaky, female voice, girls turn into silent women that repress expression and drown in perfectionism, all while trying to please a mystical male parental figure who will never love our Wild Souls.

I've fought my own battles with shame, got lost in the forest of proper, pretty and nice, and shut down my voice as I denounced my erotic, emotional, complicated nature. I thought I was wrong and therefore did not have the right to be seen and heard.

What helped me crack open was hearing other women story-tellers, artists, authors and teachers talk about women as whole, rich, layered individuals.

  • My Mission As Artist is to be a voice for the voiceless
  • I am here to paint the world with my mess and madness.
  • If you decide to support me on Patreon, please know I'm reaching out to as many souls as I possibly can with the truth that Women. Are. Not. One. Thing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I super duper love men. My husband is the director for Dirty Me Divine and he and I co-create artistry for humanity. It's our mission together. Personally, I see a gaping hole when it comes to women's voices being heard (annnndddddd..... positive black male and female voices.... and Latin voices.... and wise women/crone voices.... and so on). Me, in this incarnation, I'm ushering in the Female voice as much as I can.


SO THIS PATREON THING
When I first heard of Patreon, I felt possibility pop.

Artists and Community coming together. 

Art for the people by the people.

That means you/me/we have a say in what we want to hear/see/create. 

Patreon is unique. It's not a kickstarter. It's kinda like Kickstarter in that it brings creators and supporters together but the big, huge, main diff with Patreon is that it's a platform where Creatives receive on-going support from our community to consistently create content (vs one big push for one big project). Basically, if you dig my art and wanna support me, this is the place to do it.


HOW PATREON WORKS

1. You choose how much you want to pledge/contribute per month:$1 or $5 or $20 and up-- your choice.

2. Once you set up your monthly pledge, Patreon will automatically process it every month.

3. Funds go towards the Dirty Me Divine tour, at first.

Once we grow this community and the tour is underway, I will make more projects for WOMAN. Projects like mini art videos that are visual bursts of creativity with a message. On-line artistry can reach so many and I want to blast these out into the world. They may include spoken word, dance, theatre, short story. They will be made by Woman for Woman with themes like the Right to take up Space, Owning the Erotic within, Honoring your inner Lady Boss Bitch, expressing through the Sacred Soul, Freaking your Truth.

DARING TO ASK 
Travel + lodging + theatre is an investment. I am looking for theatres that will eventually want to present my show and take care of me as an Artist, but I am not waiting on that to tour. It's a lot to carry the production side of things and this is where I am inviting support for this movement around women's voices being heard. I call it a *movement* because it is one.

I feel it in the air.

I see it in the women I meet: fiery and ferocious sisters, not willing to wait for permission to be free. 

Brian Swimme writes that "humans are the space where the Earth dreams through us."

My art is the Earth dreaming through me. 
My story is for those who can't speak.
My voice is for She.

If you are contributing here on Patreon, whether you choose to pledge $1/month or $50/month, your dollars are flowing for the feminine, baby.

I'm ready to get down n' dirty.
With the Divine.
With my freaky female voice.
With LOVE.

Wanna roll with me?

(I feel like we're some underground group of Badass Boss Angels, fighting patriarchy and small thinking, inspiring girls and women across the land to freak their TRUTH...... that mayyyyyyyy be my inner rebel/dreamer talking, but hey, imagination is everything.)

I invite you in.
Let's do this.


Love,
Christina D.
