JOHN MAGARY received support for Antoinette, a feature-length narrative about a womans unfinished battle with life, an ecstatic chronicle chasing its defiant subject across four decades as she raises seven kids amidst the pain, joy, death, and rebirth of the city she calls home. And where is her home? Its New Orleans, a place like no other, tumbling down the backside of Americas twentieth century. Scenes from Antoinettes life spill out in chronological disorder, in bursts short and long, with the random force of memorya history, a dance, a delirious harnessing. From her self-imposed name change at seven, to her first child at seventeen, to a disastrous brawl in the projects at twenty-nine, to her post-Katrina exile in San Antonio, Antoinette takes a hopscotch through time with ailing siblings, battered suitors, determined girls, belligerent boys, and one very tough woman.

A grant of $12,500 was awarded to J. MANDLE PERFORMANCE, Brooklyn, New York, in support of the development and production of Room and development of Pedestrian Traces, in the 2001-02 season. Founded in 1996 by Julia Mandle, the organization creates and produces performances, often site-specific, in unexpected public locations and unconventional venues. Mandles productions are realized through her signature costume-defined choreographya process that involves dance movement inspired by the design and structure of clothing. Pedestrian Traces is an outdoor, site-specific performance that examines pedestrian behavior and movement patterns as they relate to urban planning. Room is a series of small-scale, indoor performance installations that explore perception in corporate work environments and how intimacy is mediated between public and private spaces.

XAVIER MARRADES ORGA received $14,000 for TRANS TIME, a personal reflection of the filmmakers seven years in New York City. According to Orga, New York is a place that shaped his development as a person and artist and his entry into adulthood. He arrived in the city in his early twenties. It was the fulfillment of his teenage dream to move to New York, not only to realize his artistic ambitions, but also to nurture his developing sexuality as a gay man. The chance to leave behind the otherness that enveloped so much of his pre-New York years had finally arrived. He would also finally have a real chance to connect with others. What happened in the ensuing seven years was a rite of passage, moments of lost innocence, gains in maturity, brushes with mortality. This film is an open search and meditation about personal change in the transitional city of excellence. It will unfold as a trip through time, which Marrades Orga looks within himself and travels on a journey of discovery through others.

The Jerome Foundation Directors made a $15,000 grant to the NEW YORK FOUNDATION FOR THE ARTS, New York City, as fiscal agent for composer NATHAN CURRIER. These dollars will be used to support the performance of Curriers Gaian Variations, by the Brooklyn Philharmonic in April of 2004. The piece is an expression through music, text, projections and limited staging of the Gaia Hypothesis, initiated in the early 1970s by British scientist James Lovelock. It asserts, in its most simplified expression, that the earth itself is a living organism. Curriers composition will be divided into three acts, encompassing instrumental sections as well as vocal settings of words by Lovelock and Loren Eiseley.
