From a swamp in northern Ontario to the streets of Paris, Nisha Coleman uses music, recorded dialogue, soundscapes and traditional storytelling to share a deeply personal tale involving mosquitoes, mental illness and recurring self-exile. Told in her signature comedic style, Nisha tackles serious subjects with humour and grace. Be prepared to experience the emotional gamut, from flatulence to identity crises. Self-exile takes you on a quest away from and eventually back to the self.
