The New Eccentrics
Hello Eccentric Fans!
We are proud to announce that because of Your support, the New Eccentrics are about to embark on their strangest adventure yet–we have been invited to the first ever comic book theatre festival in New York!
The Comic Book Theater Festival has announced that they are bringing the most innovative visual theatre to their festival.
…the comic book has only existed for a short time, but it has pervaded our culture so much as to change the very way we view cinema, advertising and time itself. The Comic Book Theatre festival has selected us because the combination of sequential art and time-based art is a completely new field–and our use of pop-ups makes us pioneers.
The New Eccentrics have always been committed to bringing something new and fresh to variety entertainment. We involve our audiences in strange new mythic worlds of fabric and paper, while pulling on the raw chaos and audience interaction of vaudeville traditions.
Going to the comic book theatre festival means taking our show to the Next Level! Our goals are building recognition for this new art form, and then BRINGing BACK our show to share it with YOU; creating more immersive craziness, bigger pop-ups, more danger, more avant guard weirdness! Fused with a comic book!
Currently, we find it convenient to live in our New Eccentrics Tour Bus, bouncing between gigs on the west coast. This keeps us mobile…but it is also because it keeps our costs low so we can pursue the fringes of avant guard vaudeville.
Unfortunately, the travel costs alone of this venture have broken the New Eccentrics’ bank.
Here’s what we still need.
Break down of fees:
Total Funds Required: $1070
We’ve already purchased our tickets, on a whim and a prayer, and have $45 to our name until we start raising some arty funds!
