Grant or Program
National Dance Project Production Grant
Grant Amount
$45,000

Formulae & Fairy Tales places the cold, highstakes world of mathematics alongside a vivid, twisted fairy tale palette of romanticized beauty. These worlds come together in Alan Turing’s story—father of the computer and artificial intelligence—encompassing nuanced themes of queerness, injustice, technology, and fantasy. The work features cryptography, codes, hidden meanings, and the apple as a symbol of forbidden knowledge and forbidden love. Theatricality, projections, and original music shape the performance into a landscape in which potentially-esoteric material becomes accessible to a wide audience. Performances will be complemented by Invertigo’s signature community engagement activities. Estimated artist fee: $19,000/performance; $30,000/week
