Harvard Commons, The Smith Campus Center, 1350 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
Join famed tap dancer and choreographer Ayodele Casel for an interactive Town Hall at Harvard Commons in The Smith Campus Center on Thursday, November 1, at 5:30pm.
Ayodele Casel's autobiographical show, While I Have the Floor, premiered to rave reviews and a sold out run at the Spoleto Arts Festival in Charleston, SC. Together with members of tall poPpy, inc. (the show's production company) Torya Beard and Darren Biggart, the Harvard community is invited to explore how claiming authorship can strengthen community. An interactive experience of performance and conversation, this Town Hall is designed to investigate how claiming identity and legacy can create a path to agency and action. Ayodele Casel will also perform an excerpt from While I Have the Floor.
Joining the conversation as co-facilitators will be Destiny Polk and Amanda Gorman '20. Destiny Polk is a Boston-based performance and teaching artist, producer, and founder of art-activist platform Radical Black Girl. Amanda Gorman '20 is a published author, community organizer, inaugural Youth Poet Laureate of the United States, and Founding Executive Director of One Pen One Page, which promotes literacy through free creative writing programming for underserved youth.
Refreshments will be provided at the end of the event.
