UnBrokenLine

Unbroken Line is Jamie Zubairi's second solo performance piece combining theatre, movement, art, live painting, poetry, dance and song. In it Jamie Zubairi tells of Dolah, a Malaysian accountant who not only has lost his job but also his identity. This is his journey of discovery.

Jamie Zubairi is an actor who makes thought provoking, often funny and beautiful pieces of theatre. His artwork is no less enigmatic and colourful. 'Unbroken Line' is about Dolah, a Malaysian immigrant who has been living and working in London as an accountant for the past 10 years. After being made redundant he hasn’t only lost his job but also his identity. Upon meeting a mythical warrior he goes on a journey in search of who he really is.

Jamie Zubairi uses his ‘Skylarking’ method to create and tell stories. ‘Unbroken Line’ which was borne from several extended explorations of themes over two years, makes use of Jamie’s experience as theatre actor, comedian, and painter to present the story of Dolah and how he answers the question ‘How do you do what you do when you no longer are what you are?’

The play is unusual in that it uses spoken-word, direct address and live painting to tell it's story. More excitingly, it looks at my Malaysian heritage and culture and uses classical Balinese Dance and gamelan.

Unbroken Line is a 55 minute solo performance devised by Jamie Zubairi and Kath Burlinson, fusing spoken word theatre, live painting, and Balinese dance. It will be performed Upstairs at OvalHouse in London from 4th-15th December 2012 as part of their Autumn season.

Unbroken Line Target Reached

Hello wonderful people, It's my Jamie Zubairi. You probably have received the email from wefund that Unbroken Line has reached target. Apparently all I have to do is press a button and the funds will automagically come from your paypal into mine, so this email is just a little prewarning that this will happen on Tuesday. So if you've pledged a significant amount, this is the time to ensure you have it in your paypal. Thank you once again for your support in this. I feel so honoured and humbled that you have found the time and funds to support my efforts. This is the start of the journey. I feel so happy that I've got your support around me in its completion. Yours Jamie Zubairi jamiezubairi(at)gmail.com

Photoshoot

We have smashed through the £400 mark with the last 3 pledges, bringing the total we need to raise to £1833 which is considerably a lot less than when we started 11 days ago. This has been an amazing experience for me to know that the support is out there! As a link here's a blogpost about the recent photoshoot that my brother and his wife Linda did of me in my studio. Some of these photos have become publicity shots for Unbroken Line. They're such great photographers. http://everypassionarts.com/2012/08/31/unbroken-line-photoshoot/

I am the 10 percent! (12, actually)

Thanks to my last two supporters (including one person whom I haven't met (so cool, so generous!) they sent my WeFund into the 10 percent mark. All this within 4 days of my wefund page going live. Then another friend called up saying he couldn't be bothered registering said, "Can I just paypal you instead?" so he did. So I've pledged it from my paypal account. He also wanted to remain anonymous. Thank you everyone. I feel so honoured! Zooby

It all counts!

I met a friend yesterday and he handed me £2 in cash, apologising for the 'little amount'. Really, it didn't matter, it all helps. I know that times are hard for people, especially other actors. I've added it to the final value myself from paypal. So don't be shy or feel that you're not able to contribute. You can. Every pound donated chips away at the final amount. And I am grateful for it! Lots of love Zooby

Scott Hampton Foundation Charity Night

I have just had approval from Ovalhouse that one night in December will be a charity fundraiser event, where proceeds from the takings that night will be given to the Scott Hampton Foundation for Burkitt's Lymphoma. Burkitt’s lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and affects around 200 people in the UK each year and is the most commonly diagnosed in teenagers and young adults. Around a third of these cases are in children. How the disease develops remains unclear but research has shown that the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) may be involved. Scott Hampton, who trained with me at LAMDA, was struck down in 2005 with the disease and the foundation was set up to fund research into finding a cure. For more information please go to http://www.scotthamptonfoundation.org.uk I've added this bit of information so you know that your donation will go towards something greater than just the art when it finally gets performed.

And we're off!

Thanks to the first pledge of £25 a few hours after the page went live, Unbroken Line is off the starting blocks. I hope this is going to signal how it's going to go. How amazing that someone out there cared enough for my project to pledge. When it makes target, a piece of original art will be winging its way to the USA and my first pledge. The photo of the sprinter just off the starting blocks is Jeremy Wariner.
