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.

STREB, Brooklyn, New York, received $23,000 in support of the Emerging Artist Commissioning Program. Founder Elizabeth Streb invents action ideas that are archetypal, noticeable, and understandable. The outcome is a mixture of slam dancing, exquisite and amazing human flight, and wild action sport. STREB’s Emerging Artist Commissioning Program, housed at the company’s Williamsburg home SLAM, accepts proposals from movement-based artists, including choreographers, aerialists, and circus artists. The goal is to create a pool of artists who can capitalize on the resources distinct to SLAM so that, either literally or conceptually, they may use SLAM’s special and unusual characteristics and qualities to inspire new and exciting creative experiments. Selected artists receive commissions, time, space, and resources tailored to the nature and scope of their projects. They have opportunities to showcase their work and receive feedback from both Elizabeth Streb and audiences.
