2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

MOUTH/PIECE, by JD Stokely, will be a project in two parts. The first will be a two-day workshop for black femmes, women and non-binary folks that explores the mouth as a site of trauma, un/desire(ability) and resistance by using Theatre of the Oppressed games, writing exercises and interviews. The second part of the project will be a new auto-ethnographic performance inspired by the workshop series that will examine how sharing and documenting their stories is a Black liberatory praxis.
