2015 Fused And Contemporary Theater Fund Grantees

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in partnership with FACE Foundation is pleased to announce the 2015 Grantees of the FUSED (French U.S. Exchange in Dance) and Contemporary Theater funds.

These two grant programs support artists’ residencies and/or presentations both in France and in the U.S.

This year, $408,000 in grants was allocated to 36 institutions for projects in France and in the U.S. Each project reflects the vibrant state of French and American artistic creation from devised to hybrid forms of theater and dance. A substantial number of French and American ensembles and companies are touring in the U.S. or in France thanks to the work of these programs and that of the strong network of presenting partners which has been reinforced in recent years. 

The FUSED program is developed in partnership with New England Foundation for the Arts/National Dance Project (NEFA/NDP).
