Mutinous Mindstate

Political images of the American Desi Diaspora. From political posters, to album covers, to t-shirts, to graffiti to stencils to concert posters, to conference posters - I will try to tumble images all things politically Desi. Contributions welcome!

Hey New York - Barriers a Desipina & Co. production is running from now to Sept 18th. Tickets for $18 available here.

Barriers takes place four months after 9/11  and deals with the Chinese/Pakistani Abbas family, and the loss of their  oldest son Nabhil at the World Trade Center. The Abbas’s only daughter,  Sunima, comes home to announce her pending engagement to a white man.  However, Sunima’s news becomes lost in a mire of household problems and  she gets trapped in the family loss they never dealt with.  As this  multi-cultural family begins to fragment, we begin to piece together the  past each one hides, and the future they all share.  Originally  mounted in 2002 at HERE and then subsequently co-produced with the  Asian American Theater Company in San Francisco and Los Angeles in 2003,  Barriers is returning to the stage to look back on the ten-year anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy.
