ALEX RIVERA received a grant for Death of a Cybracero, an experimental sci-fi narrative about Mexican farm laborers who live in Tijuana but work in the United States via the internet. They are, in effect, virtual laborers. As the principal character, Jorge, grows closer to achieving his dream of living in the United States in reality, he is forced to choose between continuing to pursue his dream or saving his sister. His sister, Victoria, has been seized by a violent group of vigilantes that patrol futuristic networks looking for illegals, or Netbacks. Will Jorge save his sister from these villains?

ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE, New York City, received $15,000 in support of its 2001-02 season. Its aesthetic combines found objects and texts with elements of slapstick comedy, dance, audio design and dramatic literature. Elevator Repair Service company members contribute ideas and material, and embrace the unpredictable collisions among various source materials and theatrical styles. The aim is to be mysterious, comical and gracefully awkward. The tenth anniversary season begins in August with work on a new show, followed by continued development of that new piece in the spring toward full production in the fall of 2002 at P.S. 122 in New York. The company will revise and polish a previous work, Highway to Tomorrow, for a run in early January. Subsequently, that work will tour in the US and Europe.
