  'The Artful Token'  
(Music/Theatre/Dance)

"The Artful Token" is a contemporary commedia dell'arte adaptation of Carlo Goldoni's "La Vedova Scaltra" ("The Artful Widow"). The story follows Rosie, a gifted Black university sophomore who is learning to navigate an often racist and sexist world.

In this special production, student actor-creators have undertaken a creative-practice-as-research process to explore antiracist theatre principles and the opportunities and limitations of commedia as an antiracist and anti-oppressive form of theatre.

Content Warning:
Commedia dell'Arte is a centuries-old art form that is uncensored in its delivery. Performances are often bawdy and body-based in humor and involve themes that may be inappropriate for younger viewers. This show furthermore may contain discussion or representation of racist and sexist language and behavior.
