About the Grant

$30,000 to support PURO DESEO (MAP 2009), an evening-length work by choreographer luciana achugar premiering at The Kitchen in May of 2010.

About the Project

PURO DESEO, which translates both to "pure desire" and "nothing but desire," will examine the relationship between artistic process and art as commodified product. To create PURO DESEO, achugar will deepen her collaboration with visual artist Michael Mahalchick. The two will work with her other recent collaborators including lighting designer Madeline Best and dramaturg Victoria A. Davies.
