Office Scene

In Office Scene, Beal speaks about an experience that is personal, yet universal to many women of color working within the corporate space. A rumor circulated at work that Beal’s thick, kinky Afro and ethnic hairstyles fascinated her white male colleagues. These men were curious about how her hair felt and wanted to touch it. Beal developed a piece that explores the thin line between personal and private within the workspace. With the melody of spoken word, Beal transform into a voyeuristic actress fulfilling the desires of her male colleagues. However, the viewer is left with their imaginations as the tentative voices of the men discuss conflicted feelings of touching Beal within a very corporate office setting.
