The Jerome Foundation, on a very limited basis, makes grants to established mid-career artists if they are facing particularly steep challenges and are at critical junctures in their work and careers. A grant of $15,000 was awarded to FIVE MYLES, Brooklyn, New York, to support the creation and production of a new work by puppet theater artist HANNE TIERNEY. Tierneys project represents new artistic territory for her, an investigation into changing the relationship between audience and performance, to let the audience experience a sense of complete participation in the action on stage. Shell change this relationship through the unorthodox use of video projection. Her new work titled How Wang-Fo Was Saved, based on an old Chinese legend and a story by Margaret Yourcenar, tells the story of the triumph of art over life.

All of 15 HEAD's productions are marked by outstanding physical performances, sophisticated and challenging visuals and innovative interpretations of universal or operatic themes. we are especially drawn to experimentation with the integration of text, dance, music and the visual arts, believing that a dynamic interplay of vocabularies provides a richer and more striking experience than any medium alone. Jerome funding will be directed toward the development of two new works in the coming season. The first, Coco, is an original one-woman show inspired by the life of fashion and perfume designer Coco Channel. A variety of written sources, along with improvised material will be developed by company members under the guidance of artistic director Julia Fischer.

DEEPAK RAUNIYAR received support for White Sun, an 89-minute long drama about life in a Nepali Mountain Village in the wake of a decade-long armed conflict. When his father dies, anti-regime partisan Chandra must travel to his remote mountain village after nearly a decade away. Little Pooja is anxiously awaiting the man she thinks is her father, but she's confused when Chandra arrives with Badri, a young street orphan rumored to be his son. Chandra must face his brother Suraj, who was on the opposing side during the Nepali civil war. The two brothers cannot put aside political feelings while carrying their father's body down the steep mountain path to the river for cremation. Suraj storms off in a rage, leaving Chandra with no other men strong enough to help. Under pressure from the village elders, Chandra must seek help from outside the village to obey the rigid caste and discriminatory gender traditions he fought to eliminate during the war. Chandra searches for a solution in neighboring villages, among the police, guests at a local wedding, and rebel guerrillas.
