Written and performed by India-born, New Mexico-based artist Shebana Coelho, it interweaves poetry, monologues, improvisation and choreography drawn from flamenco and Sanskrit classical theater.
At a time when the lingering effects of colonization are manifesting in fraught conversations about borders and fear of the other, this fierce and cathartic narrative unravels the insidious ways colonization works inside and outside the skin, through culture, history, emotion and offers a healing alchemy of metaphor and movement.
The text is in English...with threads of Urdu, Portuguese, Spanish, Caló, Konkani, Mongolian.
The project is currently being workshopped through a grassroots tour to preview the play, build audiences and fundraise for the final production.
As part of a new cross-cultural initiative, Faraway is Close, it will be presented with accompanying creativity workshops that nurture participants to stand up in their own story.
The APRIL 27 work-in-progress performance will be preceded by a creativity session to create short embodied poems.
