African Booty Scratcha

Virtual Theatre Collaboration

African Booty Scratcha.png

African Booty Scratcha is a collection of select poems written by Lester Eugene Mayers. His work explores the identity of Blackness - by giving an insider look at the Black experience, experiences that are not too often praised. 

In the words of Lester, "he uses the Black vernacular to write through feelings and welcomes the reader to challenge their ideas in language and the styling of beauty."

This project was a virtual collaboration between theater artists across the world. We would meet on video calls at least twice a week, and we completed the entire production process in four weeks. As designers, we were tasked with to come up with two separate design concepts - one that aided in the reality of our video production, and a second that showcased our designs if we were able to stage this show in a physical theater space.
