We’ve Come Undone
Written and Performed by Kayhan Irani
A series of moving monologues inspired by stories from the Arab, Muslim, American and South Asian communities.
From a young girl’s bewilderment at her father’s disappearance, to an INS agent’s rant and a Sikh woman’s humorous conversation with an arsonist, the characters’ truths aim to enlighten, activate and inspire.
Interweaving drama, dance, music and multimedia, this poignant multidisciplinary piece explores the impact of recent legislation on several communities in the US that are experiencing the trauma of detention, disappearance and deportation.
‘We’ve Come Undone’ offers an invaluable collection of insights and perspectives for any American seeking to survive and combat the culture of fear and asks the questions: what happens when deception and suspicion are allowed to permeate the fabric of our society and embed into the weave? How does that affect our behavior and who we become, individually and as a society?
Kayhan has created traditional and non-traditional theater at various venues in New York such as Lincoln Center, The Public Theater, Chashama Theater, The Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and at Burning Man and on city streets. "We’ve Come Undone" combines story-telling and performance with audience interaction. For more about Kayhan and her work please visit artivista.org
