Shebana Coelho (she/her) is a performer and writer, originally from India. She received a CEC Arts Link Award to facilitate creativity workshops with Ashtar Theatre in Palestine. Her solo plays explore the ripple effects of colonization—what oppresses, what liberates—in a felt body sense and combine poetry and dance drawn from flamenco and Indian classical dance/theatre. They include The Good Manners of Colonized Subjects and Once I was a stone, una piedra, ek pathar (presented at the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre, the Arts at Marks Garage, and American Samoa Community College, among others). shebanacoelho.com.
