spansta-2860

The Secret Life of Spantsa  is an original play created by Zuzka Sabata, Dell’Arte International alumna and company member.  The show is based on events in the life of Olive Oatman, a white American migrant who, in 1852, found herself adopted by the Mohave Tribe at the age of 15.  Upon returning to white society, Olive traveled the country lecturing about her experiences to audiences that were both horrified by and hungry to know more about indigenous culture.  This play goes beyond the traditional heroic narratives of the settling of the American West to illuminate the complex consequences of colonization.
