From Misha Berson, Seattle Times theater critic:
The Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs has announced $160,000 in individual performing arts grants in its 2013 CityArtist Program. Among the 31 municipal grants are awards to theater artists Braden Abraham, Kathya Alexander, Paul Budraitis, Rose Cano, Dayna Hanson, Terry Podgorski, Amontaine Aurore Woods, Malika Lee, Paul Mullin, Leslie Law, Sarah Rudinoff and Ann Teplick, for their work on new or revised plays and scripts.
These grants include an $8,000 award to Cano to develop staged presentations of a bilingual play based on Don Quixote and Sancho Panza as homeless characters; $4,500 to Abraham for a new translation of Henrik Ibsen’s “Enemy of the People,” set in the Pacific Northwest; and $3,000 to Woods for her full-length, one-woman play about a black teenager exploring revolutionary mindsets in 1970s suburban Seattle.
