Women's Work & Other Stories

By Angella Paulette Foster

Abstract

Born and raised in the Kentucky, Angella Foster explores her kinship with the strong women who shaped the land and the character of her home state with their bare hands. Inspired by her grandma's stories of growing up the daughter of sharecroppers, Women's Work captures the rhythm of daily labor and explores the emotional landscape of an imagined community of women in rural Kentucky. The piece also features an original sound score composed and performed live by School of Music students
