Brock's team is just two games away from winning the competition and he believes that clinching the championship alongside his mates is the fairytale end before going to the rugby academy. Through rose tinted glasses, the future seems bright, but how far will he go to make his dream a reality?

OUR UNIQUE ANGLE 

Originally a 10 minute piece, Balls has grown up since it's initial supervision sessions (thanks to theatre personality, Ben Crowder for his guidance and encouragement) right through to it's workshop days with various actors who brought to the table their versatilities. 'Balls' is now developed into a full length 90 min stage play and has been accepted in the 'Emerging Artists' Showcase at Te Pou Theatre in New Lynn, Auckland.

WHY WE NEED FUNDING
Because Navi's ethos revolves around collaboration, we believe all artists who contribute their creative energies and talent deserve to be paid. Hence through funding, we'll be able to cater to all our artists and crew who collaborate with us. 

YOU CAN HELP US RAISE $5,000 TO COVER:
- Venue hire fees
- Rehearsal space hire
- Rugby uniforms and shoes hire
- SPFX make up (required for on stage brusing and sports injuries)
- Set props and Rugby gear (mouth guards, first aid kits, towels, etc)
- Building a changing room set (for a more realistic theatrical experience)
- Transport fees (transporting set furniture and props to and from theatre)
- Theatre storage fees
- Printing costs (scripts, theatre programmes, flyers and posters)
- Hiring a Fight Choreographer (professional assistance and safety)
- General administration costs for running production 

YOU ARE OUR HERO!
This is Navi's first crowdfunding campaign and we would be over the moon to achieve our target with your help. Anything from as little as $5 to $50 would take us towards reaching our $5k goal!

You are not only supporting young Kiwi artists, but also encouraging collaboration within NZ's Arts Community. Follow Navi Collaborative on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! Spread the word 
and share our campaign with people beyond our circle and come to see our show! Your help is greatly appreciated. 

Balls' has an impressive amount of genuine energy and grit. Nothing will make us more proud than to bring this production to life!

  • #LetsBoostNavi in 3 DAYS!

    43 MONTHS AGO

    What a tremendous journey so far!


    From rehearsals, organising set furniture, bringing characters to life and of course working with an incredible bunch of talent...

    Even though we have had generous support from our loved ones throughout this campaign, we are still 51% shy of reaching our $5000 goal. All we can do is truely demonstrate our core intention of why this project matters and why working for free is not an option we want to rely on. With all the funds you have helped us raise so far will be returned if we don't reach our goal in 3 days. Yes that's right, this is ALL or NOTHING. 

    Director of Navi Collaborative, Dawn Glover explains further:

    Thanks to all those who have donated towards our production, we would like to encourage you to share our campaign with your friends and family too. Balls has been quite a journey so far, and we cannot wait to bring this show on stage for you!
