Hi There,

Thanks for stopping by and checking out this page. My name is Ayo-Dele, I have been acting and creating music for many years, both done separately. In 2012, I independently released my debut album "Forever Becoming" which was launched at "The tabernacle" Notting Hill and directed by Femi Elufowoju jr and accompanied by a full band.  Over the years I've had the desire to make a show about the themes of the Album.

I would like to research, develop and present a piece of work,  called "Becoming" which includes music, dialogue,  and movement.  I will write and perform the piece.
Inspired by my debut album "Forever Becoming"  the story explores topics such as migration, relationships, faith and identity, and takes place in both London and Nigeria, the audience members are invited to travel into my world at different stages through songs, storytelling, music, and movement.  

The creative team is made up of professional and experienced artists.  It will be a three-week project. Week one involves gathering all the written material to date including the most recent and detailed, valuable feedback received from the Telegraph Hill Festival. We will also be researching key areas for development and workshopping the ideas for the final piece, this will provide the foundation for the second week where we will introduce movement and songs, along with the sound and lighting elements. The third week will see us bring all these elements together to rehearse as we prepare to share to an invited audience consisting of friends, family and industry professionals.

To date, I have performed excerpts of "Becoming" at three separate showcases, all self-funded, the third was performed at the Telegraph Hill Festival. After a successful pitch earlier this year, we have managed to secure programming for next spring, yep 2018, but before that can happen I need to present my completed production to potential industry partners.
So...............

I need your help to raise £2,500.

This money along with will help towards production costs which include everything from rehearsal space to creative fees. The plan is to develop the show with my dream team.

I have until 1st November to raise this money. Every penny is appreciated.
