ABOUT THE GRANT

  • $31,450 to support Trauma into Art (working title) (MAP 2017)
  • $6,896 to general operating support for Everett Company

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Everett Company will create Trauma into Art (working title), a dance theater piece telling the intertwined stories of police officers, and young people growing up in poverty in Providence, RI. Both groups have experienced trauma and both suffer from negative stereotypes. Everett has collaborated with these groups for numerous years and this project has grown organically from that deep work. Embodying these stories through dance and theater will give audiences a human view into an often conflicted space. Trauma into Art will go beyond stereotypes, communicating complex realities with emotion and humor, embracing the dream of the Beloved Community.
