Grant or Program
National Dance Project Production Grant
Grant Amount
$43,000

Thank You For Coming: PLAY is the second in a series of works which heighten how we experience ourselves in relation to other bodies, stories, and spaces. The ritual of storytelling will be forced to the forefront of a physically-driven dance-play to examine how we rely on stories to relate to one another and form identities as individuals and citizens. The conflation of Driscoll’s life story with those of her collaborators and others will create a quasi-fictional collective autobiography that is danced, sung, and spoken. Estimated artist fee: $25,000/week (plus housing, travel, and freight).
