2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

  • Neighborhood: Northern Liberties/ West Poplar
  • Discipline: Performance

Keila is developing SKIRT (working title), a performance about the not-so-quiet dilemma of the deified, denigrated, protected, and deconstructed female body. SKIRT integrates text, narrative, original music composition, set design and visual media to reflect the bodies we own and live in, versus the body as it’s interpreted in the gaze of others.

The Directors Lab West invited Keila to attend their eight-day intensive for emerging and mid-career theatre directors and choreographers. The Window of Opportunity Grant will support Keila's travel to California, where the intensive takes place, as well as accommodations while there. The opportunity to be in dialogue during The Directors Lab will help her increase the range of conversations around challenging questions like: Who do we become once we’re made acutely aware of the position of femaleness in public spaces?
