I am choreographing and directing a video dance. The goal of the video is to showcase how New York City per se is a “melting pot”, where everybody can dance and through dance create a community. No body limitations, no dance styles restrictions, no gender or race or passport restrictions: Dance (just dance). In these difficult times, we are hoping to build a better world one dance at the time, showing how diversity is beauty, power and a “melting pot” community is a must.

I am collaborating with my brother Alberto Falco.
Alberto, is a composer and musician and myself, Bianca, I am a choreographer and dancer, songwriter. We have been collaborating a lot through the years, it's been a bliss to be able to work together. To make this more exciting, I am happy to share that the cinematographer/ editor will be our nephew Mattia, yeah, how much better can it get?
Now the hard part to share, Alberto just discovered that he has a cancer and as of today we wish to make this project happen asap, before he will be too debilitated from the treatment, making his collaboration difficult.

Alberto and Mattia are in Napoli, Italy and I am in NYC. The video will be shot in NYC at the end of October 2019.

We plan to fly Mattia to NYC thanks to your generous contributions!

Please, help the Falco brother, sister and nephew to unleash our creativity!

She is from Napoli, one of the most creative, and sometimes, challenging cities in the world. Through dance, she learned that she could transcend difficulties through translating it into modern dance.
