Artist’s Note:
The N-word is defined as any “victim of prejudice similar to that suffered by blacks; a person who is economically, politically, or socially disenfranchised”. The title of this work comes from one of the poems within, titled “Shoes”, which discusses the author’s overwhelming wish to save and uplift all disenfranchised people of the Earth and to change the structures which instigate inequality.

Project Website (itself an ongoing performance artwork)

An extension of butoh-vocal theatre workshops held by Edoheart (Eseohe Arhebamen) at New York’s multiple-OBIE award winning Living Theatre, our purpose as an ensemble stems from our multidisciplinary backgrounds in the arts, our united interest in experimental performance art and our own sociopolitical perspectives as persons of “other” categories. An allegory of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Eucharist and a reference to a function of celebrity in American mass media culture, Eat Me & Drink Me is a unique performance experience dealing with themes of perception, sacrifice and consumption.
