Mother Tongue is a speculative, choreopoetic play about the Grenadian heritage I carry with me because of my mother, who immigrated to Brooklyn. The play features folktale figures who guide my mother along her lonely pregnancy and ancestral figures who I look to for inspiration. The play is haunting, vulnerable, and heart-filling.
I give my flowers to Ntozake Shange for inventing the choreopoem and Audre Lorde for inventing the biomythography, both creative methods which are central to this work of art.
