This year's winners of the Charlotte Street Foundation's Generative Performing Artist Awards are two Kansas City artists known for the diversity of their ensemble work. KCUR's Laura Spencer reports.
Stephanie Roberts teaches physical theater at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and founded Boom! An International Lost and Found Family Marching Band.
The artists were selected through a competitive process by a panel of area performing arts professionals. Each will receive $6,500 in unrestricted cash awards for their work. A public performance is planned for fall, 2010.
