About the Grant

$10,000 for A Black Burlesque (MAP 1994) by choreographer Reggie Wilson. Based on Wilson’s years of research into the rift between black spiritual traditions and blues cultures in the U.S. and the Caribbean, this two-act, evening length work incorporated text from Rhetta Aleong of Trinidad and Tobago, who also portrayed its central character.
