Off-Broadway's Ensemble Studio Theatre has announced the 2023 recipients of the EST/Sloan grant program.
The program is a part of EST's partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Started in 1998, the EST/Sloan Project is an initiative designed to support art that explores science and technology while challenging the existing stereotypes of scientists and engineers in pop culture.
This year's grant recipients are Brysen Boyd (POD:ORCA:POD), Will Dagger (Epitaph of Utopia), Avery Deutsch (The Age of Mary), Ryan Dowler (ROACH), Miz Hashimoto (The Bees Call Me Eva), Divya Mangwani (Indus), Laura Neill (C-WIID: A Comedy!), Juan Ramirez, Jr. (Of Great Magnitude, or The Earthquake Play), Billy Recce and Elise Wien (GUANOMANIA!: A Musical Shit Show), Liqing Xu (Untitled Epigenetics Play), and Gracie Leavitt with Media Art Xploration, Inc. (When Light Bends).
Applications are now open for the next round of EST/Sloan Play Commissions. To learn more, visit here.
