In collaboration with artist/performers Ty DeFoe, Larissa Fasthorse, and Madeline Sayet, Young Jean Lee is developing an as-yet untitled project that mixes film and live performance. The piece will work with genre conventions drawn from post-apocalyptic narratives, using them to imagine a near future in which America’s settler society suddenly collapses. In the aftermath of that erasure, a Lakota community decides what to save, what to recover, and what to abandon.

$24,000 to support American History Project (title TBA) (MAP 2015)
$4,684 to general operating support for Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company
