KADER, JACOB, New York, will travel to Salt Lake City and Ogden, Utah to do further research for the development of a new play titled Watermaster, a play about water development in Utah and a man's spiritual journey. Kader was born in Provo, Utah to parents who were both born and raised in Utah. He is curious about the correlation between water and religious faith and belief. Kader’s elders were “Jack-Mormons”, a term for somebody baptized Mormon, but who smoked, drank alcohol and coffee, and didn’t always attend church. He abandoned the Mormon Church after high school, feeling disconnected because of his Arab-American ethnicity/identity, and educational pursuits. Kader will research the history of social and religious issues, and the development of the irrigation and dam system of Ogden, Utah, digging deep into the underpinnings of the society – land and water appropriation, issues of power, family, and belief.
