Home is where I lay
M'ap Boulé
 

M'ap Boulé - Home is where I lay is a play with songs telling the story of a child of immigrant parents growing up in Australia finding her identity. Through a collaboration with Anthea Williams, Victoria Falconer-Pritchard, Mick Stuart and Kween G, Nancy weaves together song, poetry and spoken word, in the world premiere of this original live show.

Nancy combined the stories of the first black-led republic of Haiti and her own personal narrative, as a Haitian-Australian.

Written by Nancy Denis.
