Theatre Communications Group announces Applications Open for Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships program, a grant where actors are given the opportunity to grow artistically and professionally in collaboration with a Theatre Communications Group (TCG) member theatre. The grant seeks to deepen and enrich an actor’s relationship with a not-for-profit theatre, placing actors as the nexus between theatres and communities, serving the community’s needs in a meaningful way.
Deadline November 19, 2019, Noon Eastern Time and we will host three info sessions via Zoom webinar on: remaining webnars Thursday, October 3, 4:00-5:00pm ET and Tuesday, October 8, 4:00-5:00pm ET.
Actors are selected in two categories:
Exceptional Merit: $15,000 (with an additional $10,000 available to relieve student loan debt) supports actors who are established in their careers as working professionals with 10 years or more of professional experience. Those with less experience are still eligible to apply but must recognize that they are competing with actors who have demonstrated a sustained dedication to their careers. Funds will support actors who are evaluating the current state of their career and envisioning what their career could be as they continue to grow in their artistry.
Distinguished Achievement: $25,000 supports actors with 20 years or more of experience who have amassed a substantial body of work. Funds will support recipients who are looking for opportunities to continue growth and sustain the longevity of their careers. Actors may use these resources to adapt to physical changes later in their career, as well as changes in casting.
The host theatre will receive $7,500 to be applied to costs associated with the actor’s residency activities.

The Power of Two Suns
Curated by Omar Berrada
On view September 19–October 31, 2019
LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island | Upper Gallery
110 Andes Rd, New York, NY 10004
Gallery Hours: Thursday–Sunday from 12pm – 5pm
Governors Island has been metamorphosing – from a military base into a popular gathering place for education and leisure. Taking a cue from the site that hosts it, The Power of Two Suns is a meditation on the challenges of proximity and distance, of isolation and hospitality.
Isolation comes in many guises. Yto Barrada’s hometown of Tangier, Morocco, sits at one end of the Strait of Gibraltar, at the northwestern tip of Africa. Once a gateway to Europe, the strait has become a symbol of forced isolation, as crossing is allowed in one direction only. Barrada’s work has repeatedly highlighted such social constraints, by playfully tracing the forms of people’s resistance to them.
