HISTORY

Everyday Afroplay is a living play text, which began in 2016 as a daily theatrical mediation on blackness or the black body, in its’ ever mutating and varied forms. With the help of publishers, directorial collaborators, designers, and performers this meditation lifts out of a two- dimensional state into time and space via screen, publication, and the stage. Between the processes of staging from JACK to the present day STUDIO, I have experienced that {EDAP} has a fluid nature which allows the text to mold itself according to the space it inhabits. In future iterations of this work, I intend to maintain that fluidity, always responding to the specificity of place, space, people, and community.
