Co-Artistic Director of Et Alia Theater, Ana Moioli, is one of 3,000 New York City-based artists to receive $5,000 through the City Artist Corps Grants program, presented by The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) as well as Queens Theatre.

Ana Moioli was recognized for This is Me Eating__, which will bring an immersive theater installation to the West Village of New York in Manhattan on the 30th of October at 4pm. Find the tickets here:

This is Me Eating___ is a dynamic 45 minute immersive performance that centers around exploring the multicultural layers of one's relations to eating and the universality of body image issues. The show is museum themed and intimate, exhibiting to twenty to thirty people per performance. The performers will work with projection, sound and physicality in order to immerse the audience in a stimulative and meditative state that provokes reflection. Directed by Debora Balardini, performed and produced by all members of Et Alia Theater (Deniz Bulat, Ana Moioli, Maria Müller, Luísa Galatti, Giorgia Valenti), Associate Produced and Designed by Dave Morrissey and concept by Giorgia Valenti.

“Come ready to be part of these women’s inner and outer explorations of their eating habits, traditions, and mental reflections,” says Giorgia Valenti, Co-Artistic Director of Et Alia Theater, “Come ready to feel part of a
creative process and absorb this global process. You might just discover you are not so alone.”

Over the course of three award cycles, more than 3,000 artists will receive $5,000 grants to engage the public with artist activities across New York City’s five boroughs this summer and fall. Artists can use the grant to create new work or phase of a work, or restage preexisting creative activities across any discipline.

Members of the public can participate in City Artist Corps Grants programming by following the hashtag #CityArtistCorps on social media.

City Artist Corps Grants was launched in June 2021 by NYFA and DCLA with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) as well as Queens Theatre. The program is funded by the $25 million New York City Artist Corps recovery initiative announced by Mayor de Blasio and DCLA earlier this year. The grants are intended to support NYC-based working artists who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. It is strongly recommended that a portion of the grant be used to support artist fees, both for the applying artist and any other artist that are engaged to support the project.
