About the Grant

$25,000 to support Who's Hungry Santa Monica (MAP 2010), a new performance piece by Dan Froot, Dan Hurlin, Amy Denio.

About the Project

Who's Hungry Santa Monica (MAP 2010) seeks to illuminate the human dimensions of local hunger and food insecurity by rendering life stories of homeless and hungry residents of Santa Monica, CA in the form of puppet theater. We create book-length oral histories with several community narrators. We then collaborate with them to adapt the stories into short toy-theater puppet plays, performed on tabletop stages and accompanied by a live band. The plays are to be performed together as an evening's program for economically mixed audiences (low-income folks and subscription-level theatergoers) throughout Santa Monica and nationally.
