2013-14 Exchange Grant Recipients

Mondo Bizarro (New Orleans, LA) and On the Creek Theater Ensemble (Big Hill, KY) engaged in an artistic exchange to frame the Clear Creek Land & Theater Festival in July 2014. The exchange focused on: incorporating local Kentucky-based knowledge/stories into Mondo Bizarro’s touring version of CRY YOU ONE and on the development of a newly devised ensemble performance by On the Creek.


Part I. This conversation between Nick Slie and Robert Martin outlines the two-week exchange between Mondo Bizarro and On The Creek ensemble that occurred in July 2014.  Nick and Robert talk about the why, the what and share some of their important take aways from this incredible experience.

Part II. This video essay is a digital thank you card to the literally hundreds of people who helped manifest the “Land, Water, Food and Story Festival” for two weeks in July, 2014.  Hosted on the grounds of the Clear Creek Festival, the “Land, Water, Food and Story Festival” featured the national premiere of ArtSpot and Mondo Bizarro’s performance Cry You One and an evening-length performative response from the On the Creek Ensemble.
