The Good Manners of Colonized Subjects, a solo play by Shebana Coelho
MAPLE STREET DANCE SPACE and FARAWAY IS CLOSE
present

A SPECIAL WORK IN PROGRESS REVIEW OF

THE GOOD MANNERS OF COLONIZED SUBJECTS, a solo play about a human animal, fragmented by colonization, who journeys through memoir and myth to confront fear and reclaim lost poetry and dance, indigenous to her spirit, collective to the species.

Written and performed by India-born, New Mexico-based artist Shebana Coelho, it interweaves poetry, monologues, improvisation and choreography drawn from flamenco and Indian classical theater and dance.

Duration: approx 75 minutes. There will be a brief interactive session with the artist after the performance.

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 umbrella organization for the play is Faraway is Close, a new cross cultural experiential project founded by Shebana Coelho, that offers creativity and writing workshops and adventures to nurtures "the stories under the skin, indigenous to your nature, the stories only you can tell."


The play has been workshopped in Santa Fe, Honolulu, Hawaii, American Samoa, Gravity Hill Farm, NJ and most recently, was presented at the Pan Asian Repertory Theater's Nuworks festival in New York City.

This incarnation of the play was developed in collaboration with Maple Street Instructors Alice Blumenfeld and Aparna Sindhoor - many of the first gestures of choreography found shape in the front studio!
