15 HEAD - a theatre lab

The Directors authorized a grant of $20,000 to 15 HEAD-A THEATRE LAB, Minneapolis, Minnesota, in support of two new works in the 2000-2001 season. 15 HEAD - a theatre lab is a nonprofit, professional, experimental theatre lab. 15 HEAD uses a highly structured, collaborative rehearsal process to create original works, or adaptations of existing works. 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. The second work, based on the novel by Colette, titled Cherie, recasts Colettes characters in a timeless space that could be anywhere and everywhere that people create civilization. The story examines aging and its impact on love.
