Strange Fruit

Posted on in Audio Visual, Events

Throughout Somebody’s History: A white woman’s journey to understand race in America Amy Selikoff‘s monologues, stand-up comedy and spoken word segments are punctuated with “interstitials” – short animations designed to provide a moment to breathe (for audience and performer). In collaboration with Bryant Lee (composer, musician) and Amy (director), I created these animations with Processing, an artist-friendly coding environment. You’ll see this first interstitial, Strange Fruit, near the beginning of the show, as Amy describes the Middle Passage, when millions of enslaved Africans were taken to the New World — “Somebody’s history in the belly of a ship…”. Our second show almost sold out, so make sure to get your tickets (and an Orlando Fringe button) for Wednesday night’s 9pm show! Tickets and more information at
