Foundation Awards Two New Grants in July
This month, the Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation is pleased to announced two new grants:
- A grant to the Anonymous Ensemble, of Brooklyn, N.Y., to support a concert of selections from the new opera Turing, by William Antiniou (composer) and Eamonn Farrell (librettist). The opera explores triumphs and conflicts in the life of gay British mathematician Alan Turing. The concert will be held on October 4, 2017, at National Sawdust, at 80 North 6th Street in Brooklyn. For more information on the Anonymous Ensemble, visit the group’s website.
- A grant to support a workshop and staged reading of the play Trigger, by Darrel Holnes. Trigger’s characters and their stories are based on the real-life experiences of African-American soldiers—some gay or bisexual—at war in Afghanistan and Iraq. The staged reading will be presented at the Jerry Labowitz Theatre for Performing Arts at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.
