All of us at Crosspulse want to thank everyone who contributed to make the First International Body Music Festival a huge success. Artists, volunteers, audience, donors, press, partners, production crew and staff - felt transported by the range of body music performance: that with basically the same instrument we express not just music and dance, but our cultures, our specific body language. As the first gathering of its kind, it proved a very powerful and moving experience. Every program over the six days was well attended, the educational outreach reached over 2,500 students and teachers, and all the concerts sold out in advance. We know this IBMF is the first of many. The next IBMF is scheduled for December, 2009.
The International Body Music Festival was produced by Crosspulse, an Oakland-based non-profit arts organization dedicated to the performance, recording and education of cross-cultural rhythmic arts.
Funded in part by National Endowment for the Arts, Oakland Cultural Arts Fund, William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, San Francisco Foundation, Lighting Artists in Dance, Walter & Elise Hass Fund, Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
