Dear Partners,

 Please visit the following site for all the information about the new program, French-American Fund for Contemporary Theater, dedicated to Contemporary Playwrights and Multidisciplinary Theater Projects and don't hesitate to contact me.  

The French-American Fund for Contemporary Theater is an outgrowth of étant donnés : The French-American Fund for the Perfoming Arts

The French-American Fund for Contemporary Theater is a new initiative composed of two programs dedicated to foster innovative artistic collaborations in the field of THEATER and contribute to the dynamism of intercultural dialogue and exchange between France and the U.S.

The first program is dedicated to French contemporary playwrights.
The second program is dedicated to multidisciplinary theater from France.

The French-American Fund for Contemporary Theater is particularly interested in supporting theater projects that explore aesthetic boundaries and reflect the cultural and aesthetic diversity alive in theater today. Priority will be given, but not limited, to French artists whose work has rarely or never been seen or developed in the U.S. 
Co-productions and partnerships between cultural institutions are strongly encouraged.
