I'm an actor, singer, playwright, filmmaker, activist, futurist and gonna be sailor. I spent the last 35 years or so of my life working as a Teaching Artist and Educator. Upon returning to New York City to care for my Mom, I was approached by a wonderful director/producer I know. She wanted to work with me on developing my next solo performance piece but all my time and energy went into looking for a j.o.b. to pay bills. Art would have to wait...again...and again...and again...

It was like being stuck in a recurring nightmare! I know what gifts I'm graced with. I know that I'm supposed to be on stage performing, creating and sharing those gifts with as many people as I can reach. In the aftermath of tRump lurching into our lives I've become even more determined to do what I do best because it's more important than ever for artists to #makeART! 

This is my Third Act. NOW is most definitely the time and this amazing platform, Patreon is one of the means by which I can make this dream actually happen. If I can connect with enough people who are interested in my work and want to see more of it...if each member of my audience supports me for as little as $1 a month, then I can #makeART #myLIFE.  I hope you'll choose to be a part of that vision by becoming a patron of my art.

WAIT, WASN'T YOUR LAST NAME HAMILTON?
Yes, it was. I dropped the 'Hamilton' because it's a slave name and hey, seems like more than 100 years is long enough to carry that crap. I'm going by my truly 'given' name. Janine Georgette. (My Dad's name was George and even as a baby I looked just like him so my Mom made Georgette my middle name.)



Check out the official explainer video  HERE or my short version which is: if you choose to support me and the artists I work with, you give Patreon your credit card or paypal # and you're charged $1 every month. (You can give more if you like, the benefits of each tier are listed on the sidebar to your right.)

Your support will go toward paying the costs incurred by making art. (For example: camera and editing equipment, rehearsal and performance rentals, props, costumes, publicity, paying collaborators. You get the picture.)



The greatest creative project of my life is now grown and embarked upon her own life's journey. I'm over 60 and finally able to focus on the reason I was put on this planet. To peform, sing, to tell stories, to share an experience of spirit with an audience and surprisingly...to sail.  

My current project is a multi-disciplinary production that examines how slavery is still very much a part of our lives in ameriKKKa2019. I use spoken word, video, song, improvisation and story to envelop the audience in an interactive theatrical experience.

The theater company Ego Actus (My Way) has signed on to produce and I'm working once again with its amazingly compassionate and celebrated director, Joan Kane. The working title? r_Evolution.

If you like, you can hear a rough cut of a vocal track for one of the songs in my Patreon Feed.


You mean besides the warm and fuzzies from making ART possible? Oh baby, I've got all kinds of goodies lined up for you. Patrons get to 'Ride Along' on this amazing journey. You'll get to see behind the scenes photos and videos, hear the music I'm working on and give feedback on different pieces that interest you. First looks, free tickets, surprise gifts and oh yeah, ART!

((insert Happy Dance))

It's so exciting embarking on this journey with you. I'm deeply grateful for whatever support you're able to share. If you do join me on this adventure, make sure to let me know what you'd like to see and hear more of and I'll see if I can make it happen.

If you've got any questions, or just want to tell me how you're doing, shoot me an email at [email protected]

Love ya!
Janine
