When Know Theatre of Cincinnati was
launched in 1997, it was an itinerant theater company. In fact, it was
called the “Know Theatre Tribe” and its shows, touring productions and
readings directed by founder Jay Kalagayan, were presented at bookstores
and art galleries around town.
Even with President Obama's "stimulus" plan and package, there's still much to be desired in terms of arts funding. But there's some good news as well: The Contemporary Dance Theater has landed a respectable sum from the NEA Arts Recovery and Recruitment grant program. Meanwhile, Cincinnati Ballet gears up for a stellar and diversified season.
