United Colours of FrustrAsian

In a room a man sits at a table, his heart beating like a rhythm tapped out on a tabla. With every beat he remembers a moment of his past and a dream he had for his future. Is this a mid-life crisis or merely a moment of reflection?

Fusing together live music, storytelling and a party that everyone’s invited to, five artists explore their journeys in a witty and poignant exploration of identity; who we are and who we might become.

Directed by Kully Thiarai (Obama The Mamba, Veil), with design from Shanaz Gulzar (Veil, Adept), United Colours Of Frustrasian features performances from Inder Goldfinger (Fun-Da-Mental), and Ezra Khan (Trespass Against Us, National Theatre, Complicite).

In an ever-polarising world where your colour, faith and gender carry preconceptions, what happens when we unite and ask the question "are we really all that different"?


United Colours of FrustrAsian is a part of Alchemy. Presented by Cast in Doncaster, Black Country Touring, Oldham Coliseum Theatre and Southbank Centre, London.
