A while back, with great enthusiasm, we wrote about Kickstarter, a ‘platform’ for funding creative projects by people with passion, ingenuity, and creativity. From time to time, we contribute to a project or are just are so excited about an idea we can hardly wait for it to be completed.

We’re hard at work on our next book and are in the middle of a chapter on sports and exercise; our thesis is that physical activity should be joyful and fun. Imagine our pleasure at coming across this today. We¬†want to share it with you.

Girl Walk//All Day

This is from the Kickstarter site:

What is Girl Walk // All Day?
by Jacob Krupnick

“We’re making an epic, 71-minute dance music video set to All Day, the new album by mash-up musician Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis). The idea behind Girl Walk // All Day emerged from our desire to expand the boundaries around the idea of the traditional music video, which usually spans the length of a single track. This album-length piece will feature a talented group of dancers across a range of public and private spaces around New York City, turning the city’s sidewalks and obstacles into part of an evolving improvisationaldance routine.

The piece will be available for free online in short, serialized segments and we also plan to screen the full-length film in public spaces, and at festivals, concerts, parties, and beyond, inspiring an interactive viewing experience that will evolve into a series of dance parties around the globe.

What’s the story?

A young dancer finds herself disgruntled with her low-paying, mundane waitressing job. One day, she impulsively quits, then takes a ferry to the city. Feeling incredibly inspired by what she sees, Anne dances her way across New York, using the city as her stage. Throughout her journey, she meets characters of all types, including a series of like-minded dancers, who’ll inspire new movements, engage her in small battles, and teach her to fear, love, laugh and live anew.

From the ferry to museums, subways, ball games, bridges, bodegas, graveyards, flower shops, and more, Anne’s journey will bring her far and wide.”
