PERFORMANCE

ALRIGHT: Solving the Problem of Living

When the 2020 Montreal Fringe was cancelled du to Covid, Nisha readapted her storytelling show for the screen. She filmed ALRIGHT in an oak tree in Kanata, Ontario.

ALRIGHT takes you on exhilarating, nail-biting and heart-wrenching adventures. In her signature animated, humorous storytelling style, Coleman welcomes you to her world in which she cleans feces-filled bedpans, is rescued by a Westley from The Princess Bride, and is locked in the Madrid train station.

 

She also reveals her darkest days, all in the spirit of "solving the problem of living" and learning to be alright with being alive.
