2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Eliza will produce and stage Little Debbie, a solo performance in a 1950’s style, all-white, interactive kitchen whose red interior is exposed when viewers open cabinets. The titular character is Little Debbie, a housewife clown who welcomes folks into her home for tea and conversation, where it becomes clear she is afraid of culturally different unicorns and the color red. Little Debbie aims to challenge white fear and whitewashed history.
