McCraven is an Interdisciplinary Artist, with works experienced in forms such as theater, drag, installation, movement, film, and music. Their art unapologetically engages with black anarchist theory and holds reverence for their Hip Hop theater roots and practice.
Their work is focused on collaboration and intersectionality, building relationships and having conversations in spaces that solidify and amplify the experiences inherent in brownness and queerness and humanness. The tradition of relational aesthetics; the relationships themselves; the establishment of commonality; these are the purpose of the work, rather than the notion of product.
DW McCraven currently resides in Western Massachusetts.
