2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

  • Neighborhood: Southwest Philadelphia
  • Discipline: Performance

Donna’s play, The 7 Person Chair Pyramid High Wire Act, has been accepted to participate in ANT FEST at Ars Nova in New York City. The highly selective festival presents work by "all new talent" (ANT) for one-night-only performances each June. With the WOO grant, Donna will travel to and from NYC, cover artists' fees and set repairs.

Directed by Sarah Lowry (ACG ’09, ’08), the play stars Donna and her collaborator Patrick Costello, and centers around questions of solitude versus working in a group, and the complications of both. This is the first time Donna’s work will be seen ay an Off-Broadway theater, and she hopes this opportunity will be a stepping stone toward visibility and professional relationships with presenters and producers in New York and beyond, ultimately bolstering support for the work she’s doing in Philadelphia.
