Creative Realization Group

2246 43rd Street , Astoria, NY 11105

Creative Realization Group was founded in 2015 to serve a national community of artists and arts organizations in the creation of new artistic work and its dissemination. CRG nourishes and cultivates the appreciation and understanding of artists, their work and its impact on the well-being of society.

The Rex grant is specifically to support the production of Wayne Shorter’s Iphigenia, a modern stage adaptation of the powerful ancient story by Euripides that combines music, operatic and non-operatic singing, dance and visuals reinvented for a contemporary improvisational context by a composer and musician widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest improvisers.
