Merchant/Farmer/Artisan
Whatever your feudal caste, you are now officially my patron. Despite the distance between us, I bow deeply in your direction. You'll get my patron-only emails and access to the patron-only feed, and so you know: your voice is just as important as someone giving me $100.

Ronin
The castle gates will open for you. Would you like to weigh in on my work? You'll be personally invited to exclusive workshops for the next piece I'm currently developing. Here we will sip green tea together, as I serenely contemplate your sage feedback for my next major work. This is an invitation to have a face-to-face artistic dialogue where we starve the ego and feed the soul.

Samurai
A masterless samurai no longer, you will be inducted into the mysterious and ancient Shigematsu samurai clan. Practically speaking, as you may already know, my shows sell out before opening night. Long before anyone else, you will receive an advanced notice about when and where tickets will go on sale. You will also be the first in line to receive exclusive promo codes. In fact, if you plan on buying more than one ticket, this perk will practically pay for itself, plus all previous rewards.

About Tetsuro Shigematsu

For more than twenty years, I have been telling stories across an array of media. I'm a writer, actor, performance artist, broadcaster, scholar, filmmaker, and theatre artist. A former writer for This Hour Has 22 Minutes, I became the first person-of-colour to host a daily national radio program in Canada when I took over The Roundup on CBC Radio One in 2004, where I co-wrote and co-produced nearly a thousand hours of network programming. My award-winning body of work in film, television, radio, new media, and theatre continues to be taught in Canadian and American universities as examples of creative possibility. In short, I'm an artist trying to figure how to make art in one of the most expensive cities in the world, and I need your help.
Goals
$45 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 per month, I'll start an exclusive YouTube series where I show my supporters an inside glimpse into my life on tour, my creative process, and the unique challenges I face as I create my next work.
