      FIONA TEMPLETON's work ranges across various disciplines.
      Her books include poetry (London, Hi Cowboy, oops the join),
      plays (Delirium of lnterpretations, YOU--The City),
      performance (Elements of Performance Art) and the visual
      arts (Cells of Release). This last was written for a two-
      year installation in Eastern State Penitentiary in
      Philadelphia in collaboration with Amnesty International and
      Prison Sentences. She has been awarded fellowships from the
      National Endowment for the Arts in both Poetry and Visual
      Arts (new genres); two fellowships from New York Foundation
      for the Arts for performance, as well as one for
      playwriting; and a Foundation for Contemporary Performance
      Arts grant for theatre in New York. Her play YOU--The
      City, "an intimate citywide play for an audience of one,"
      has been recreated in six cities, including New York,
      London, and most recently as a key project of Rotterdam
      Cultural Capital of Europe 2001. Her play, L'Ile (The
      Island), a theatre game by appointment, was commissioned for
      the opening of the Lille European Cultural Capital 2004 in
      France.
