Summary of piece:
In ‘Shirley, your goodness and undying love will follow me all the days of my life’ Debbie Maciel explores the dynamic relationship of suppression & freedom as it intersects with her Peruvian/Brazilian heritage. Inspired by her devoutly catholic mother and her brassa nova’d personality father Debbie moves in and out of dance, theater, speech, and song engaging her audience in a question about identity, both hers and what hers as a daughter of immigrants signifies. The piece is equal parts introspection and exposition, transitioning in and out of seriousness and unadulterated fun, all in the name of attempting to be understood.
