The TITAS team of Berry and Adams got a pleasant shock from NAMP just before they found out in November how little grant money they would receive. Another $10,000 was available for the group from funds that were left over. It will be used to buy a computer system.
So TITAS, at a grand total of $11,500, looks less like the black sheep of the audience-development trainees.
"Want to know who we'll be bringing to Dallas next season?" Adams asks conspiratorially. "We're continuing our mission to bring international dance, music, and performance art the likes of which Dallas has never seen."
Among them is a new company called Aeros.
"It's David Parsons and Moses Pendleton working with Romanian gymnasts. They're putting together a mind-boggling show that's a hybrid of dance and theater."
Berry may have a high degree of difficulty finding an audience for that one.
