JAMES DOWELL/JOHN KOLOMVAKIS (previous recipients), were awarded funding for Ned Rorem: Word and Music, a feature-length portrait of Ned Rorem, the Pulitzer Prize winning composer and diarist. Through this engaging man, the viewer will be provided with a window into the music and literary world of the last sixty years. His diaries revealed a sexual candor in this form unseen before. His music has a clarity that has made him a role model for many young composers.

JOHN MAGARY received support for Antoinette, a feature-length narrative about a womans unfinished battle with life, an ecstatic chronicle chasing its defiant subject across four decades as she raises seven kids amidst the pain, joy, death, and rebirth of the city she calls home. And where is her home? Its New Orleans, a place like no other, tumbling down the backside of Americas twentieth century. Scenes from Antoinettes life spill out in chronological disorder, in bursts short and long, with the random force of memorya history, a dance, a delirious harnessing. From her self-imposed name change at seven, to her first child at seventeen, to a disastrous brawl in the projects at twenty-nine, to her post-Katrina exile in San Antonio, Antoinette takes a hopscotch through time with ailing siblings, battered suitors, determined girls, belligerent boys, and one very tough woman.

A grant of $12,500 was awarded to J. MANDLE PERFORMANCE, Brooklyn, New York, in support of the development and production of Room and development of Pedestrian Traces, in the 2001-02 season. Founded in 1996 by Julia Mandle, the organization creates and produces performances, often site-specific, in unexpected public locations and unconventional venues. Mandles productions are realized through her signature costume-defined choreographya process that involves dance movement inspired by the design and structure of clothing. Pedestrian Traces is an outdoor, site-specific performance that examines pedestrian behavior and movement patterns as they relate to urban planning. Room is a series of small-scale, indoor performance installations that explore perception in corporate work environments and how intimacy is mediated between public and private spaces.
