Waking the American Dream

In December 2003 TARSHI in collaboration with CREA, presented Broadway star Sarah Jones in her new solo performance 'Waking the American Dream' in Delhi.

The play is a powerful exploration of the complexities of identity and freedom in immigrants' lives in the United States of America. At a time when identities have become the ground on which hostilities are concentrated, it is important to emphasize tolerance and respect for diversity. Diversity is the essence of being human. To celebrate diversity is to create and promote spaces for different expressions - social, artistic, sexual, literary, cultural and religious.

Sarah Jones and Tony Award winner, Steve Colman also used the powerful style of slam poetry to comment on the state of the world in three highly appreciated shows in Delhi and Mumbai.
