LeAnne Howe: Choctalking on Other Realities

And we're back. We hope everyone is having a great 2009. Without any further delay...

UIUC Professor LeAnne Howe will be performing her one-woman theatrical production of Choctalking, based on her short fiction on Friday, January 23 and Saturday, January 24 at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Urbana, IL. Both performances are at 7:30pm.

Here is some information on the show from the KCPA website:

...geography is at the heart of both Howe’s exploration of landscapes and the journey that she and her characters traverse in Choctalking. Howe roams from the 1970s to the early 1990s, from Oklahoma City to Jerusalem and Jordan and back again, breaking through spatial and temporal constraints to connect multiple cultures and countries. The dense textures of history, fiction, and analogous cultural references will conjure a modern odyssey in which new implications of the American Indian experience will be uncovered outside the US borders.
