Current and Upcoming ProjectsArts Council of New Orleans 2013-2014 Grant!
The Black Forest Fancies have been awarded a grant to begin a project entitled "Theater Not Theater", a revolving evening of theater which utilizes experimental spaces in New Orleans to reshape the way that people think about performance environments. This will be a 90 minute revue with four 15 minute pieces created by individuals or ensembles to showcase new site specific shorts under a site specific theme.
This grant will also support The Cachet Art and Culture Program, a collaboration between artists and educators, The Black Forest Fancies and The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. Thes program will strengthen the intersections of culture, health and healing and provide a space for exchange and interaction between individuals, the community and the Museum. The Pharmacy Museum is a space of historic medical significance. The Cachet program will blend past and present, fact and fantasy, medicine and magic to concoct new understandings of history, health and the collective spirit.
The Cachet Program is an ongoing opportunity for artists and educators to have two months of access to the NOPM as a place for research, exhibition and outreach. Each participant is required to present new works in this time as well as to facilitate open educational programming of their choice as well as an evening lecture held at the museum, open to the public. Five participants will be selected annually, by invitation and application from local and national networks. The range of work will include writers, puppeteers, dancers, perfumers, photographers and ensemble theater.
