Crowd funding Q&A with Theatre Bubble

Theatre Bubble got in touch to ask some questions about how to make a successfully crowd funded project. It would seem my fund raising efforts did not go unnoticed and Sing For Your Life and it's believers have been featured on various websites as complete success storys :D " Sing For Your Life  is perhaps the perfect example: created by a reputed international sculpture artist without a background in theatre, it paired puppetry with taxidermy pets to create political theatre perfection. Having won awards and acclaim at the Vault Festival, it went on to raise £5,400 ..... " ".. Even amongst new work by internationally acclaimed companies such as Complicite and GECKO,  Sing For Your Life  stands out as one of the most memorable highlights of the Edinburgh Fringe, and the most genuinely effective piece of political theatre I have witnessed to date – "  Here's the full interview:
