New Music USA funding for ILLEGAL SUNSHINE

We are ecstatic about receiving our second grant from New Music USA! This funding supports our massive project, ILLEGAL SUNSHINE, as we launch into our next wave of dance film/music video creations!

We are currently shooting/editing three new videos featuring dancers Ellie Sandstrom, Jim Kent, and Jessie Smith!

Video Installation Pop-ups

Let the premiere festivities begin for our new stop-motion dance film/music video, “Patience, Atlas”!!!!!!!!

We collaborated with Magnolia Woodworks and built this beautiful video display sculpture. It will be hosted as a pop-up installation at a variety of venues in Seattle during April/May 2017. Swing through and check it out:


And, we’ll be having a premiere party, ILLEGAL SUNSHINE, for the video (along with live music & dance!!!):

***This project is funded in part by Office of Arts & Culture Seattle & New Music USA***

In addition to the daily posts we were making on our own tour diary blog,
Culture Collide was kind enough to host some of our “best of” stories and pictures:
Tour Diary: Who, What, When, Where, Weird with Marion Walker – Part I
Tour Diary: Who, What, When, Where, Weird with Marion Walker – Part II
Tour Diary: Who, What, When, Wet, Wonderful with Marion Walker – Part III

We also wrote a crazy tour story for Digital Tour Bus:
Reach Out and Lick Someone
