The theater company is putting the $10,000 grant toward a new project called “Feral” that “addresses the act of making visible and reclaiming the work of women through celebrating intuitive knowledge, how it is housed in our bodies and how it can be used as a tool for individual and cultural repair,” said co-artistic director Shoshana Bass.
