His other himself « makes him » dream and becomes the Woman, the Mother, the Other, to oblige the Man to face himself in all his different faces.</em></p> <p> <em>"Le Passage" is a transition moment.

Allocation of funds

<p> The project is produced by the Strings Theatre Company. The base of the scenography has been financed with the fund of the Dimitri Academy for diploma projects.</p> <p> We made various applications for funding, for example touring fundings, but we are missing the money needed for the last creation step to happen in the best conditions possibles.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Charges for 5 weeks of residency at the MarkusSaal (Salzburg) : <strong>750e</strong></p> <p> Salary of a light technician during the last week of creation : <strong>300e</strong></p> <p> Renting of a studio for the registration of the performance music : <strong>150e</strong></p> <p> Printing of communication material (posters, flyers)  : <strong>100e</strong></p> <p> Costumes and scenography : <strong>250e</strong></p> <p> Transport : <strong>100e</strong></p> <p> Kisskissbankbank commission : <strong>144e</strong></p> <p> <strong>= 1794</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> To make it round we launch a crowdfunding for <strong>1800e.</strong></p> <p> If we go over this amount we will be simply able to do better, to do more, in term of communication, scenography, costumes...and to prepare the future of this project !</p> <p>  </p>
