Description of the production:
"The sixty-five minute play is the tale of Belle, an old Native woman who, with horse and companion Blue Fred, travels across what was once the people's land. Inspired by "Mother Courage," it weaves Brechtian themes with Kuna demon tales and traditional stories with a contemporary soundscape. The one-person show, which features original multimedia projections, elaborate fabric hangings, and music, is a unique expression of the Native American community, told from a woman's perspective. Murielle Borst, Artistic Director of The Silvercloud Singers and Dancers and Miguel's daughter, directs. The production has been developed in collaboration with New York-based Loose Change Productions."
