RE: BELLYFLOP's future
BELLYFLOP is an unfunded endeavour, the work of a team of independent dance artists who seek to enliven honest, critical and enthusiastic debate about contemporary dance as part of a vivid and healthy arts ecology. BELLYFLOP has demonstrable successes, with venues using quotes from our reviews and artists asking us to feature their work, as well as the participation of a community through guest blogging, comments on features and reviews and the circulation of our writings widely.
We love doing this. But we are non-rich, working people, and BELLYFLOP costs to run, not least in our time. We are taking a break to work out how to continue what appears to be a vital resource for our field. During this time, no new articles will be added to the site (except for posts on the BELLYBLOG). However, all uploaded material will remain accessible for you to enjoy.
We thank you for your support and would like to ask you to sign our petition and/or answer a few questions to bring back BELLYFLOP. If you would like to send further suggestions, letters of support and so on, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours, The BELLYFLOP Team
