#24 – Nisha Coleman

Nisha Coleman was born in a swamp near Huntsville, Ontario.

She studied music and psychology at McGill and Wilfrid Laurier University. Once school was out of the way, she went to live in Paris as a street violinist. Her memoir about these years is called Busker: Stories from the Streets of Paris and was released with Hagios Press in November 2015 to critical acclaim (Montreal Gazette. 49th Shelf, Pickle Me This).

Nisha is a regular storyteller as well as co-producer of the storytelling series Confabulation in Montreal. Her stories have been broadcast on the CBC (WireTap) and No More Radio. In 2015, she teamed up with Jeff Gandell to co-write and perform Things Drugs Taught Me, a show that combines storytelling, theatre, and comedy. Her solo show, Self-Exile, explores isolation, flatulence, selective mutism, music, human connection, and what it means to be yourself. Self-Exile will be featured at the 2016 Montreal and Toronto Fringe Festivals.
