RED EYE COLLABORATION, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $40,000 in support of its work with emerging creative artists and for debt reduction. Founded in 1983 by Artistic Director Steve Busa and Managing Director Miriam Must, Red Eye presents multimedia theater, functioning as producer and developer of experimental art in a creative laboratory setting. Red Eye produces a Works-in-Progress series and Isolated Acts, both of which encourage artists to define new parameters for the stage. Jerome subsidy is appropriately committed to these programs because they include a large number of emerging artists working to test ideas. For these two series and other opportunities throughout the year for emerging artists, Red Eye received $35,000. In recognition of Red Eyes importance to artists, a one-time commitment of $5,000 was authorized for debt reduction.

SANDI DUBOWSKI received subsidy to produce Trembling Before G-d, an hour-long experimental documentary about Hasidim and Orthodox Jews who come out as gays and lesbians and must abandon their intertwined worlds of family and faith. This is also a story about those who choose to remain Orthodox and how they must constantly negotiate their sexuality and identity in religious communities. The work is structured as a series of journeys depicting the moving and humorous relationships that develop between DuBowski and a Diaspora of exiles. DuBowski returns with each subject to places in their Orthodox past which evoke loss, joy, nostalgia and the turbulence of emotions which derive from being cut off from one's community.

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.
