or bUt YoUr EnGlIsH iS sO GoOd!
A choreopoem inspired by the phrase
BuT yOuR eNgLiSh Is So GoOd!
Sometimes I actually listen...
and I believe my accent to be a noise that cancels my voice.
Almost Native was first written and workshopped at Carnegie Mellon's Theatre Lab (September 2019).
The choreopoem has been performed at Carnegie Mellon's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Writing Awards, where it was awarded a Special Drama Award (January 2020); and at The Artist Co-Op as part of Poetic Theater Productions' Poetic Open Sessions (November 2019).
