Faraway is Close: a workshop in metaphor, memoir, fiction
facilitated by Shebana Coelho
Inspired by stories and sounds of different cultures - faraway & close - and in a safe nurturing environment, we will imagine, read, dance, speak and create short embodied prose/lyric pieces to awaken the story indigenous to you, the one only you can tell.
Through listening to and creating from stories with diverse perspectives, my hope is to connect into what may seem 'other,' dissolve borders and step into our shared belonging to land, story and spirit. In this incarnation of Faraway is Close, we will create from the encounter with literature and songs of India and the Middle East such as Urdu ghazals, classic Bollywood films, and Arabic poetry.
WHEN: Four Wednesdays starting May 29, 6pm-8:30pm
WHERE: Private home, Santa Fe, North side
