Get Ready for GiveBIG!

We are so excited to participate in Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event on May 3, and we hope you are, too! Seattle’s GiveBIG is the most successful in the country. It is thrilling to see the impact we can make in just one day by working together.

#‎GiveBIG today through May 3, and your support for Akropolis Performance Lab will be stretched by Seattle Foundation pooled funds. And as an additional bonus, the first $1,000 in contributions to Akropolis will be matched 100%! – Please help us meet this goal.

As you know, we primarily produce our work in non-conventional or found spaces. We believe this increases authenticity and enriches audience experience. It also requires us to be fully self-sufficient, mobile, flexible, and nimble — for many productions we must set up and strike our set and tech every night! To fulfill our production plans for the next two years while continuing our commitment to this mobility, we must acquire some new equipment.

Money raised during GiveBIG will fund as many of these items as possible:

  • Risers for 2nd-row audience seating
  • Lighting fixtures (light board and 6 instruments with safety cables, barn doors, gel frames, gels)
  • Rigging for lights
  • Pipe & Drape
  • Road cases to transport and protect our equipment

And you don’t have to wait to make a pledge and risk missing the BIG day. You can schedule your donation today, and Seattle Foundation will process it automatically on May 3! To pre-schedule your gift, visit our GiveBIG profile page HERE.

We hope you will make a donation to APL’s GiveBIG campaign and see your dollars stretched through the power of community.

Thank you, as always, for your friendship and support of our work!

About Akropolis Performance Lab

Founded in 2000 by Co-Artistic Directors Joseph and Zhenya Lavy, Akropolis Performance Lab (APL) is Seattle's premiere ensemble-based theatre company. The ensemble practices rigorous, ongoing vocal and physical training and devises original work through long-form rehearsal process. APL's signature aesthetic, Theatre of Polyphony, is our original approach to crafting ensemble performance events that symbiotically interweave music, movement, and poetry to tell compelling and vital stories while reinventing the given spatial location and audience relationship to our art. Company members include Annie Paladino (Associate Artistic Director), Catherine Lavy, Emily Jo Testa, Jennifer Crooks, Joseph Lavy, Margaretta Campagna, Matt Sherrill, Sara Kaus, Tyler J. Polumsky, and Zhenya Lavy. The co-artistic directors' artistic lineage comes through the Central and Eastern European heritage of Meyerhold, Vakhtangov, and Grotowski. Recent work includes Ecce Faustus (2016), The Glas Nocturne (2015), and Pomegranate & Ash (2015). The ensemble hosts quarterly Salons and offers regular workshops in physical and vocal praxis. Akropolis Performance Lab is a Washington State Non-Profit Corporation.
