Almond’s Artists & Writers Series Continues With Andrina Wekontash Smith

Almond Restaurant in Bridgehampton continues its Artists & Writers series, on Monday, January 9, featuring Andrina Wekontash Smith.

Wekontash Smith is a storyteller, writer, and performer who graduated from Emerson College. Growing up Shinnecock in the Hamptons, her work frequently explores identity, race, and the experience of 1%-adjacent life.

She trained at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Prior to the theatre going dark in 2020, she performed monthly with her sketch team Like Butler at The PIT in New York City.

Wekontash Smith was a 2019 Watermill Center artist in residence and a Kirkland Art Center Snowed-In artist in residence in 2021. Her collaboration with Facebook, “The Darker Red Road,” received over 3.3 million views.

Her work has been seen at Upright Citizens Brigade, Guild Hall in East Hampton, The PIT, The HERE Arts Center in NYC, and The Watermill Center. Currently she spends her time between Brooklyn and The Shinnecock Reservation, where she’s working on a tiny house. Surprisingly, she notes, it is not as easy as YouTube makes it seem.

The event begins at 7 PM. Cost is $59 and includes a three-course family style meal and one glass of wine or draft beer and gratuity. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the restaurant at 631-537-5665.
