Consuming and Being Consumed: A Series of Stories Commissioned from Black Artists and Told by Black Storytellers in Conversation with Working in Desire: The Political Economy of Black Feminine Labor
This performance will be held at Griffin Hall on the Williams College campus (844 Main Street), across the street from the museum. You can find a campus map here; parking is available at the museum as well as the parking lot behind Griffin, which is accessible via Hopkins Hall Drive. A reception at WCMA follows beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Listen to storytellers recount tales of a farm passed down generations, a child choosing a doll, a grandmother’s hands holding all the things all the time, and why bouncing is evil. Veshonte Brown, Professional Training Programs Manager for the 2022 Williamstown Theatre Festival, directs the performance.
