Blacklisted

At the age of 19, Almitra struck a deal with her mother. Her aspirations of a future in theatre compelled her to leave Pakistan. Yet, two obstacles loomed: her one-of-a-kind passport and the hurdles of Canada.

In this deeply personal performance, accompanied by original music compositions, she unfolds her narrative of displacement, experiences with racial profiling, and setbacks with visa applications.

Drawing musical influence from Queen, The Eagles, Hamilton, South Asian orchestral melodies, Blues, and Jazz, "Blacklisted" takes you from the rooftops of Karachi to the serene sands of Coogee. This playful, genre-blending tale of a woman's journey homeward takes the stage.
