$23,000 to support Rude Mechanicals in the creation of NOW NOW OH NOW (MAP 2009) (formally Cagney & Lacey in A THOUSAND PLATEAUS (CL1000P), a popular adaptation of the philosophical work of Gilles Deleuze.

About the Project

Using the concept of fan fiction to encourage the creation of new work by our community in several media, CL1000P will be a rallying cry inviting new experiences into all our lives. As retired NYPD officers Cagney & Lacey travel through Europe, their adventures lead them to renounce the old Kantian frame that our senses must be organized by intellectual categories like space and time. Instead Cagney & Lacey learn that new experiences can exceed our conceptual framework and allow the raw encounter of difference to actualize our ideas, encouraging us to invent new ways of thinking.
