In this physical theater piece Trustina Fafa Sabah recounts and explores her experiences in the States and how those experiences have affected her life and consciousness as a Ghanaian abroad and as an artist. Sabah uses movement, dance, music, projections, shadow puppetry and text to take her audience through her unique journey of surprises, lessons, homesickness, heartbreak, artistic discovery, growth and happiness. She invites her audience to remember and celebrate their own precious times both home and away, what they have cherished and lost. Sabah is collaborating with fellow MFA alumnae and theater artists Sarah Lloyd and Susan Stroupe in the creation of this project.
April 16, 17, and 18
A performance created and directed by Leah Englund
Marie does not clearly remember who she is. She's afraid that she is not a good person. The world around her is burned and barren, and she isn't sure if it's her fault. Prophets, soothsayers and gossips help her find her way. This fanciful journey is inspired by Rothko paintings and T.S. Elliot's the Wasteland.
