Watch Me Work is a performance piece, a meditation on the artistic process, and an actual work session, featuring Parks working on her newest writing project on the newly built mezzanine of The Public Theater lobby. The audience is invited to come and watch her work and/or to share the space and get some of their own writing work done. During the last fifteen minutes of the performance, Parks will answer any questions the in-person audience and online audience might have regarding their own work and their own creative process.
From Suzan-Lori Parks:
