Lion or Fox is creating Social Art Practice

Welcome to Lion or Fox Social-Creative Works and thank you for joining me! This is a chance to follow the path of indie multi-disciplinary performance and art-for-social-change through the eyes of grass-roots US-based artist/producer... and to make a difference in making that work possible! 

Through Patreon, you will have access to a monthly "Fox Tracks" publication, show reviews and interviews with fellow artists, all for contributing to a Virtual Tip Jar. You can also choose exclusive access to the "Lion's Share", a bi-monthly (every-other) behind-the-scenes look at the development of project "Things That Survived The Winter", highlighting scenes, performers, and the creative framework that makes collaboration across disciplines possible. "Things That Survived The Winter" is an exploration of changing landscapes and changing health told through performance, sculpture, video, and collaboration. If you'd like to contribute a little more, you'll also receive "Presence Presents", i.e. a yearly limited-edition hand-made item. To grab a hold of the inaugural year's "Fire and Ice" scarves, join soon (!)

As a Star Producer, you can get more active in the creation process. For every $100 made at the Producer level, I will hire an artist (musicians, acrobats, visual artists) for 3 hours of rehearsal/production at $25/hr, with an hour of my time as an outside eye and producer, until the full 21-part modular show structure is completed. Producers will by privy to a process video from a collaborative session specific to the piece they have supported, a reserved seat at any preview, and Co-Producer credit on future stagings of the specified work (unless you would like to remain anonymous!). 

Thank you so much for visiting, and feel free to reach out!

All my best,

Fox Tracks
$1 or more per month
For donating to the Fox Tracks Virtual Tip Jar, you'll by privy to a Patreon-only monthly blog that will range from show reviews to interviews with fellow artists. The "Fox Path" represents the courage, strength and ingenuity of solo endeavors (albeit ones that may intersect with other artists). I will use this platform to highlight the amazing work and creative process from independent artists I have come to know over the years. 
Lion's Share
$5 or more per month
The "Lion's Share" is a sharing of the creative process at the core of my collaborative work, through current project "Things That Survived The Winter". In addition to Fox Tracks, you'll receive an additional "Lion's Share" bi-monthly (every-other) behind-the-scenes look at this project's development, highlighting scenes, performers, and the creative framework that makes collaboration across disciplines possible.  

TTSTW (for short) began its development over 5 years ago as an artistic prompt, seeded with my art memoir “Spring Freeze”. This led to a dialogue with collaborators, resulting in a full-length soundtrack, 3 public “work in progress” performances, and a fourth in development that bridges content with community engagement. I am pursuing this as an offering to chronic illness populations, motivated by the desire to create a sustainable vision to reach communities that will benefit from seeing their common experience transformed. By design "Things That Survived The Winter" combines communal storytelling, aerial acrobatics, music, and visual art to summon examples of recovery and resilience in the face of physical and emotional hardship. Sign up to hear more :) 
Presence Presents
$15 or more per month
Presence presents are a little bit "extra" ;). In addition to following along with the creative process through Fox Tracks and the Lion's Share, your added support helps me move a little quicker and little wiser, and I will drop a little physical presence into your circle. Over the years I've been known as a mass-sender of cards and hand-made symbolic gifts, and if you join at this level, you've just joined my list! For this inaugural year, I'll send out "Fire and Ice" hand-dyed silk scarves, which are poetically tied to themes of renewal in "Things That Survived The Winter". 
Star Producer
$100 or more per month
This is where the real magic happens. As a Star Producer, you are directly responsible for the generation of new works by incredible artists. For each donation at this level, you are in fact creating star artists and performers. For every $100, you buy 3 hours of rehearsal/fabrication time for one of my collaborators, with an hour of my time as a director/producer. This is big impact! This allows each of us the freedom to carve out hours of our day or week to develop thoughtful and nuanced work with gentle support.

Producers will by privy to an exclusive process sneak peak from a collaborative session specific to the piece they have supported, to show you exactly what we've been creating with your donation.  You'll get a seat at any preview performance, and Co-Producer credit on future stagings of the specified work (unless you would like to remain anonymous!). Of course, you'll also get regular updates through Fox Tracks and Lion's Share, as well as a Present for your Presence.
