I would like to say thank you for the messages , sugestions and collaborations I continually receive in answer to my first invitation for collaborations for VIRTUAL DERVISHES,The dancers are enjoying to work on this new material and I'm excited to deal with a new form of creation.
Since I received many interesting things, I'm now thinking of setting several video monitors in the performance space, showing both the written and images collaborations that people are sending, of course with the necessary written permission and credits on any press material.
As I can see now, this work will express the vision of us all on this subject.
To answer some frequent questions:
1- There is no need to be a new, specially made material for this work. If you feel that something you have already done can add to our work feel free to send it to us.
2 - People other than dancers/choreographers can also participate. My work will be to harmonize this different collaborations into an intriguing and hopefully intersting work.
3-Your work can be shown either anonimously or with all the information about you and your work available to us. 
4 - We will preserve the integrity of any work that is sent to us in the terms we will agree. People have different needs, so each case will be directly adressed.
5 - We can only show your work with your signed permission in a personal agreement, that we will request to be sent by mail to us at the right moment. 
Please, feel free to write and ask the questions you need. It also helps me to clarify others and learn how to work in this new field.
Hoping to hear from you soon,
Regina Miranda
