This physical theater piece created by Theatre MFA Candidate Trustina Fafa Sabah recounts and explores her experiences in the States: 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 surprise, lessons, homesickness, heartbreak, artistic discovery, growth and happiness. She also invites her audience to a place where they can remember and celebrate their own precious times, both home and away, as well as what they have cherished and lost. Sabah has collaborated with fellow MFA alumnae and theater artists Sarah Lloyd and Susan Stroupe in the creation of this project.
