“Eat Your Heart Out” named Best Theater Project of the year by Kickstarter

Best Theater Project

Though it is old news in the bologosphere, this was new news to us! (we hadn’t logged onto kickstarter in many months after successfully funding the project)

Honeysuckle’s solo show “Eat Your Heart Out” was named Best Theater Project by Kickstarter – an incredible honor in a humbling crowd of crowd-funded art works and startups.

See the full announcement here: http://www.kickstarter.com/blog/best-theater-project

As they describe:

“Honeysuckle Hype is a self-proclaimed “queer feminist sexually-explicit performance artist” who has a love for beef jerky and a talent for storytelling. She used Kickstarter to fund a tour of her live cooking show, promising backers spirited rewards like personalized valentines, love letters sealed with a kiss, and juicy updates from the road. In the end, it wasn’t just her bright orange wig that won us over — but a project that was outrageous, audacious and totally, totally fun.”

Thanks Kickstarter!  You win our ‘best crowd-sourced funding platform’ award!

Back in the Saddle…and on the road to riches!

While “riches” may not be the most robust fit of a word for a shoestring queer DIY performance art project, I have had a fabulous initial outpouring of support for this research project and show over the last few days. Thanks so much to everyone who has pledged their support, and/or passed the project link on, and thanks in advance to those of you who are reading this and thinking–hmmm, I do like that beef print…maybe I’ll donate a few bucks.

I am back in Seattle after a raucous week of California travel (San Diego, Palm Springs, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco with varying doses of academia, lesbian spring break/Dinah Shore, and my mother in each locale), and am entering into an intensive ten days of rehearsal. I promise to pull out of it to post more interviews, images, and clips from the Texas adventure, and to post show content as I begin to document it!

xoxox, and thank you again for your support!

Honeysuckle.
