Jamal Harewood: Word

Become a participant in this no-holds barred exploration of language and identity

“Words are pretty special. They give a person the opportunity to express themselves. They can be read. They can be heard. They allows us to communicate. I was always told that it’s not what you say, but how you say it…is this true?” —Jamal Harewood

Performance artist Jamal Harewood (Headlands Artist in Residence, 2019) uses a game show format to hold a magnifying glass to the words we use daily, creating participatory theater that is playful, provocative, and profound.
