Makin’ Cake

March 21 @ 8:00 pm

Written and Performed by Dasha Kelly Hamilton

Tue, Mar 21 @ 8 pm


Wisconsin Poet Laureate and Milwaukee’s 2021 Artist of the Year, Dasha Kelly Hamilton is a widely-respected writer, performance artist and creative change agent. In Makin’ Cake, she slices into American history, exploring race, culture and class in a refreshing and fun way. It is storytelling in layers, filled with vignettes, digital media, and a supporting cast of two onstage bakers. The show serves up a conversation about equity in America. Part history lesson, part social science revelation, Makin’ Cake is a short story about America’s sweet tooth and pathway to salvation—and leaves room for dessert and dialogue with a cake reception immediately following the performance.
