In April 2011, Immediate Medium will present the New York premiere of The Assassins Chase Pinocchio, our experimental performance piece for children young and old. As a companion piece, Immediate Medium is also publishing an illustrated version of Collodi’s 1883 text, freely adapted by the company and featuring artwork by London artist David Shillinglaw. Printed in black and white with a minimalist design and plenty of inviting white space, the books will come with a box of crayons to encourage young readers to color, complete, deface or otherwise transform the work as they see fit.
We are raising money for this project on Kickstarter, a new fundraising platform where IM supporters can provide financial backing to our project in exchange for tangible rewards. To learn more about the project, our rewards, or to make a pledge, visit our Kickstarter page for some information prepared by our good friend and yours, the Talking Cricket.
