She Talks to Beethoven
The first professional production of this bold short work by visionary playwright Adrienne Kennedy was a 30-minute, non-seated installation/performance that integrated found objects, drawing, silhouette and projection to tell the story of Suzanne Alexander, an African-American woman living in 1961 post-independence Ghana.
