I am humbled and excited to have been named a 2010 Theatre Bay Area CA$H Grantee. Warmth and gratitude to panelists: KATY ALANIZ ROUS, PETRA KUPPERS, DAMON MAHONEY, DAVID POPALISKY and LEIGH RILEY.
Big Congratz to fellow grantees: HEATHER BAER, LEDOH, LENORA LEE, AVY K PRODUCTIONS, DANDELION DANCETHEATER, EMSPACE DANCE, RAWDANCE, and WAN-CHAO DANCE.
I requested a CA$H Grant to directly subsidize the artist fees for the creative development of “Bring On The Lumiere.” For my previous projects I received financial support in the form of grants and commissions, and these funds helped to cover production expenses and performance fees. However, in the meantime it is crucial that the artists be paid for the creation of the work as well as its realization, to compensate for their time, travel to residency locations, and to validate their artistic contribution. The CA$H Grant will be instrumental for getting the work made.
