On Our Radar

Welcome to On Our Radar, a searchable database featuring nearly 300 Emerging Fields, Literature and Performing Arts projects that advanced to the second or third round in last year's highly competitive award selection process.

Going My Way: Indus Truck Works, Indus Truck Decor and the Road to Hybridabad

Going My Way addresses the Pakistani and Muslim immigrant narratives (or lack thereof) in the U.S. The project unfolds in multiple parts: via a transformed box truck, an entrepreneurial service and a mobile road show. Each part addresses the ambiguities of this condition: externalized conflict vs. internalized uncertainty, fabricated realities vs. constructed mythologies, East vs. West, that all vie for a renegotiation of this fractured identity.

Fear in Porcelain

Fear in Porcelain is a dance experience that pushes a radically new sensibility and meaning for the solo form. Fear activates the lens of scrutiny we apply to watching a solo, though it involves multiple performers, and raises performance stakes by amplifying the voyeuristic relationship between soloists and viewers.
