The Fund awards grants to nonprofit institutions celebrating the work of living composers in both countries. Collaborations combining new French and American works are especially encouraged.
A direct outgrowth of Sounds French, a festival of contemporary French music held in March 2003 in New York City, the Fund supports French-American contemporary music partnerships. Created in 2004 by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, the Fund is operated by FACE.

@ The Actors’ Gang at the Ivy Substation
The Actors’ Gang re-visits Moliere’s Comic Masterpiece to begin its 30th Anniversary Season.
Railed against as a sacrilegious outrage by the Church, Moliere’s Tartuffe was banned from performance by Louis XIV in 1664. But the scintillating scandal of the censored play drew much public attention and it finally received its premiere in 1667, grossing unprecedented box office figures. Still considered a comic masterpiece, it is regarded as one of the funniest plays ever written. As part of The Actors’ Gang’s 30th Anniversary Season, The Gang brings this fast-paced, outrageously funny, farcical romp back to its mainstage.
Beginning March 31st, 2011, The Actors’ Gang brings back seasoned director and company member Jon Kellam, who directed Tartuffe at The Gang in 2005 to great critical acclaim and a sold-out run, to re-visit David Ball’s adaptation of Moliere’s Tartuffe.
Tartuffe, posing as a religious guru tricks his way into the household of the affluent merchant, Orgon. He is a sanctimonious and scheming con-man but appears pious and therefore considered a good example for members of the family. But through corruption and deceit the hypocrite and imposter Tartuffe, schemes to seduce his benefactor’s wife, marry his daughter, and swindle all of his worldly possessions away. The gullible Orgon fails to see his house guest for what he is and chaos ensues as Tartuffe employs unholy tactics in order to reach his goals !
Shows will run Thursday – Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm. Ticket prices range from $15 - $25.
