In the new episode of Gucci and GQ’s video series “The Performers”, playwright Jeremy O. Harris travels to Berlin.
As he prepares to leave the formative nest of Yale, Jeremy enters a successful professional career with his signature voice – capturing the audience’s attention with provoking political narratives including themes of gender, sexuality and ethnicity. For the new act of the series, Jeremy O. Harris collaborated with “Lemon” writer-director Janizca Bravo whose voice is almost imperceptible in the film co-writing the film’s humorous and politically charged script, sound-tracked by Moses.
Strolling around Berlin while wearing pieces from the latest men’s collection, he explains that he was driven by a desire to expand cultural representations and inclusivity in the world of theater: “Tall, lanky, queer and black – in the small corner of the world where I was looking for plays, I didn’t find anything that looked enough like me” and he later adds “Berlin has a recognition of responsibly of a dark past, and a safeguarding of progressivism and inclusion.”
