Humingbird, An Original Play by Alix Hudson Presented Teatro Paraguas in Santa Fe
Teatro Paraguas presents
An original play by Alix Hudson
Directed by Malcom Morgan
Hummingbird takes place in an unspecified first-world country. Nadia (Iza Konings) and Miriam (Christine Armenion) are best friends and seniors in high school; Sam (Devin Zamora) is Nadia’s big brother and works at a local factory. Nadia and Miriam are excited about early acceptance into university and the spring dance, and Nadia is vying for salutatorian of her class. After Nadia and Sam’s parents are deported for being undocumented immigrants, however, Nadia falls into a coma-like state.
This is the so-called “Apathy Syndrome” that is plaguing some of the children of the nation’s refugees. After Nadia’s return from the hospital, Sam and Miriam become her caretakers. Trying to use Nadia’s sickness as grounds for their parents’ reentry while also debating her autonomy and possible motives, Sam and Miriam navigate their changed lives and relationships with Nadia. Memories, as well as Nadia’s dream-like monologues about hummingbirds, are woven throughout.
