Grant or Program
National Dance Project Production Grant
Grant Amount
$56,500

The ASL Dance Theatre Reimagining of Andrew Lippa's WILD PARTY aims to create a world in which authentically-represented Deaf and signing dancers lead the audience on a musical, textural, gestural journey through the seedy underbelly of the Deaf community during the Prohibition Era of the roaring 1920's. The scope of this project encompasses a series of in-person workshops and choreographic sessions, live musical accompaniment, haptics technology, real time subtitling, livestream video, and an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion, particularly within the Deaf and dance communities.

The Native lands upon which my project will be developed were stewarded by both the Canarsie and Munsee Lenape tribes and I acknowledge their forceful displacement and commit to devoting intentional time, resources, and energy in the restoration of these unceded lands to their original caretakers. 

Estimated Artist Fee: $40,000/performance or $50,000/week long residency
