“Evelyn Brown” Atelier Course Reconstructs Work by María Irene Fornés

During the fall 2021 Princeton Atelier course, “Women’s Work: The Evelyn Brown Project.” (ATL 499) students used the reconstruction of “Evelyn Brown,” a movement piece by María Irene Fornés, to interrogate questions of female labor and its portrayal on stage. This staging of the performance was the first showing of scenes from the work since its premiere production in 1980. The performance was directed by visiting lecturers Alice Reagan, dramaturgy by Gwendolyn Alker, set design by Donald Eastman, and featured Princeton students Ally Wonski and Kaelani Burja in the role of Evelyn Brown.
