Funding Credits: The Creation of The Mineralogy of Objects was made possible, in part, by the Danspace Project 2014-15 Commissioning Initiative, with support from the Jerome Foundation and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation's Late-Stage Production Stipend AND a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant. Additional support was received through a creative residency in South Haven, MI with generous donations of rehearsal and living space from Dianne and Steve Wagner, The Saugatuck Center for the Arts, and Foundry Hall.
