The Kola Nut Does Not Speak English

By Tania Nwachukwu

ABOUT

The Kola Nut Does Not Speak English explores the archiving of personal, familial, and cultural histories of a first generation British-Nigerian woman of Igbo descent: Tania Nwachukwu. As a storyteller recounts a folk tale about a place named Eze and the Kola Tree that grows in the village, we also discover Tania's own modern-day journey to document her history. 

 

The Kola Nut Does Not Speak English serves as a contribution to the resistance of the erasure of the Igbo language, and uses African theatre practices of oral storytelling, call and response, dance, song, and poetry, to challenge Western theatre conventions, investigate the way that methods of documentation change generation by generation, and embrace the importance of telling your own story.
