RED EYE THEATER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, as fiscal sponsor for HIJACK, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received $10,780 to support the creation of new works. HIJACK is the choreographic collaboration of Kristin Van Loon and Arwen Wilder. Grant support will subsidize the creation of four new dances, two duets for Van Loon and Wilder, a trio set on the performance collaborative Mad King Thomas and a second trio with Van Loon, Wilder and Scott Heron. HIJACK represents the confluence and clash of two independent compositional/kinesthetic impulses. It chooses specific inspirations and then investigates those sources, drawing compositional tactics from other genres and grappling with aesthetic, social and political issues.

THE FIELD, New York City, as fiscal sponsor for DAELA/KIMBERLY BARTOSIK, received $7,200 in support of the development and production of a new evening-length project, The Materiality of Impermanence. Bartosik has been presenting choreographic work since 1999. Her choreographic interests are based, in part, on the relationship of architectural space to the architecture of the body. Her work is greatly influenced by literature and cinema. The title of her new work is taken from an article on Tacita Dean, whose 16mm films have been a creative inspiration to Bartosik. As the title suggests, the project looks at a complex architectural structurethe homewhose essence is an accumulation of shifting meanings created from the human dramas and material belongings of the occupants. The concept of home has been radically altered in this era of epic foreclosures, as it has become permeated with the constant threat of loss. Bartosiks interest is in the ramifications of ones deep attachment, over time, to the idea of ones living space and the ways in which traces of ones home are materially erased once the interior life and inhabiting bodies are removed.
