THE KITCHEN, New York City, acting as fiscal agent for choreographer JENNIFER MONSON, received a grant of $8,000 to support the development and production of a new work entitled Sender. Monson will create, in collaboration with composer Zeena Parkins, a 60-minute work for six dancers and four musicians, scheduled to premiere in February of 1997. The piece, constructed in three sections, explores ideas of confinement and resistance, force and enforcement; and reflects upon the rise of imprisonment as a means of social control in contemporary culture. Experimenting with the line between speed and danger, Monsons full bodied dancing encompasses trust and delicacy.
