ACHF Arts Access
200 people, mostly not self-identified as artists, will guide the boats as they dance the ballet. A list of ballet participants will be kept, and each participant will be asked to complete a questionnaire indicating previous involvement in dance as a performing art, and an evaluation of their involvement in this project. 2: 25-50 emerging and mid-career artists will be involved in the ballet, with a heightened level of responsibility in the production. These artists will be asked to complete an evaluation of their involvement, including how their work in this project has helped them develop their art work, and suggestions for how this project could have been more helpful.
77 performed/ 110 rehearsed, 65 on boats, twelve musicians, nine crew staffed three safety boats, four ground crew of four directed, ten volunteers ushered, five videographers, 40 coordinated the festival, 2000+ attended. After the performance we sent an e mail out to all the performers, asking them to respond as to how the experience was valuable to them. The responses were overwhelmingly positive. An example: Dear friends, I was tickled to see you last night; and I am happy to have heard so much delight about the show! Patrick certainly refreshed his stature as a visionary human who can pleasingly manifest the improbable. As a lot of you know, sailboat racing was a family and community passion in my youth. With the Boat Ballet I regained the sense of community, but where the collective goal was aesthetic, not competitive! YAY! 2: Twenty-seven artists were involved with a range of added responsibilities. The post performance evaluation e mail provided us with the feedback we sought.
