About the Grant

$45,000 to support Sounding (MAP 2009), a new multi-media, ensemble theater piece that investigates and explodes our cultural attitudes toward grief.

About the Project

Written by Jennifer Gibbs, directed by Kristin Marting with video by Maya Ciarrocchi, and loosely inspired by Henrik Ibsen's "Lady From The Sea,” Sounding explores one woman's journey through grief to personal and artistic resurrection, and the effect this passage has on those closest to her. Through extensive use of POV video imagery on multiple screens, the work sounds this woman's psyche and her struggles to make sense of past, present and future. Sounding will integrate video, original music and new text to create a joyful, intimate and experiential voyage for our audiences.
