Writer and performance artist Davina’ Stewart brings her counter-narrative performance work to Artistic Director Lindsay Hopkins’ Dramatis Personae space this summer, on July 6.
Food for Thought, a collection of several performance works, is Stewart’s challenge to contemporary audiences to re-think, and hopefully change, current socio-political realities in the United States. Through the examination and investigation of internalized and institutionalized racism, viewers will co-create and envision new possibilities during the performance.
The artist will be serving cookies and popcorn during the show, adding to the confy, home-theater-style feel. “I hope many are able to add this to their summer activities, and also spread the word,” says Stewart. “I’m telling everyone to save your pennies, mark your calendars, and come build with us!”
