• Liquor Store Theatre

    Liquor Store Theatre, the upcoming book, is edited by Ken Wissoker, Editorial Director, Duke University Press. Available soon where books are sold.

    Liquor Store Theatre, a four-volume, thirty-plus episode meditation on city life in Detroit, is a four-years-running series of documented performances and conversations with people in the streets, sidewalks, and parking lots surrounding Detroit liquor stores. The scene of the liquor store is the point of departure; what happens when the cameras are turned off, as people's lives in the neighborhood continue and connect, unfolds in the book.

    Picking up where the cameras turned off, the Liquor Store Theatre book is a story of the complicated, intriguing people of a Detroit neighborhood, and how the neighborhood forms part of a global conversation on cities.

    Liquor Store Theatre is a story equally about contemporary art, city life, and new ways of thinking about cities around the world.
