NYC Event: We've Come Undone

My peoples at Rise Up Radio would like you to know about this event next week:

Kayhan Irani in We've Come Undone

WHEN: Tuesday, January 20th, 2004 at 7:00 PM
WHERE: 525 West 120th Street (take the 1/9 to 116th or 125th)
Milbank Chapel @ Teachers College, Columbia University
COST: $5

Join us on January 20th at 7pm for We've Come Undone, a series of
monologues created and performed by NYC artivist Kayhan Irani.
We've Come Undone is an often humorous, sometimes touching - but
always provocative - look at the impact of recent legislation on
Arab, Muslim and South Asian communities within the U.S. Using
research and personal interviews, the monologues portray women and
girls struggling to make sense of life in an America caught in the
grip of distrust.

In the second half of We've Come Undone, the audience will discuss
the issues raised in the monologues. Volunteers will be invited to
engage in interactive theater.

Kayhan Irani created We've Come Undone out of a sincere desire to
open communication "post 9/11" - a term so overused it has perhaps
been rendered meaningless. Precisely because there are so few
channels to facilitate the exploration of these doubts and fears
communally, Kayhan finds joy in creating a safe space for open
dialogue and interaction among various communities and individuals,
and provide more than the one-dimensional, narrow depictions
offered up by our mass media.

This event is sponsored by the TC Cultural Studies Department and
Students Promoting Empowerment and Knowledge (SPEaK) at Columbia
