"How can you say I never worked a day? ART is WORK. It just looks like play"
So says Foxy G to his buddy Kid A, in Toni and Slade Morrison’s sassy, sly tale of friendship, betrayal, and survival — or not.
Generation after generation, classic fables, folklore, and myth remain popular because they quicken the imagination of readers and listerners of all ages.
We, the creators of Who’s Got Game? were inspired by the wonder of Aesop’s Fables — their vitality, their endless demand for more interpretations. In our versions the original stories are opened up and their moralisitic endings reimagined; the victim might not lose; the timid gets a chance to become strong; the fool can gain insight; the powerful may lose their grip. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. More than a play on these beloved fables, Who’s Got Game? is AESOP LIVE!
