>I'm in the final 11 days of a Kickstarter campaign to bring ECHODRAMA, a modern dance company based out of Athens to the U.S. on tour and I'm struggling to get the word out to the Greek community! Unfortunately, because August is such a travel month, many of the representatives of organizations are just now coming back in to town. Time is of the essence, so I could really use your help in spreading the word!

>ECHODRAMA is a hugely successful, critically acclaimed modern dance company based out of Athens. They have only days left to raise the additional funds needed to begin laying the groundwork for a tour of the U.S. The Kickstarter campaign ends on August 31st at 9am and unless they have reached their funding goal by then, they will receive none of the funds pledged.

>"The beauty of the dancing caught my eye, but the story and the passion of this group touched my heart... to want to share the culture and wisdom of Ancient Greece in a way that will help us see it with fresh eyes is inspired."   
>(written by a non-Greek backer in Kickstarter comments)

>ECHODRAMA is unique in the dance world because they take the lessons of Greek culture, history and literature and view them through the lens of today's challenges. "The Cave" for example, based on Plato's cave, shows, through dance, the struggles of the individual; the awakening, the discovery and the consequences of seeing beyond one's circumstances. With the help of stunning visual projections, the choreography juxtaposes Plato's world with the modern world seen through crisis.
