Bailey’s Café presents As Quiet As It’s Kept (AQAIK), a multi-discipline performance installation based on the stories of veterans of color and their role in a changing community under the artistic leadership of Monica L. Williams in collaboration with artists from various genres: Kadeem Alston Roman, Michael Hill, Anna Pond, DJ Reborn, and Robyn Twomey, and Zoë Flowers.
‘Thank You For Your Service’ was written and directed by Flowers and stars Sherri Pullum. The story takes us through time led by Jake, a Vietnam Veteran who recounts his experiences and the impact gentrification has had on him and the community without ever calling it by its name.
