The U of M’s Nash Gallery QUEER FORMS exhibition is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Stonewall. As part of this the Playwrights’ Center was commissioned to write a new piece titles SEVEN.YEARS.OF.SHED.SKIN by Queer Latinx writer Haygen-Brice Walker. The dramatic reading at the gallery is a critical look at social media influence on queer relationships. Dating apps, instagram, and the cult of celebrity are concerns within the text. What happens when the person you “met” online is not who they says they are?
Walker defines as Puerto Rican-American, was raised in the American South, and divides his time between Philadelphia and Minneapolis. He is a Jerome Many Voices Fellow (2018-19) at the Playwrights Center. The Queer Forms exhibition is a spectacular one and Walker’s input certainly matches its aims and spirit.
