MIXED VEGETABLE

A solo show in development
Written and performed by Anoushka Ratnarajah
Directed by Ashley Aron

Where do you fit when your brown face is alone in a sea of L’Oreal blond number 5, and you sit alone at lunch because the white kids say your food smells funny? Where is home? Where is culture? Mixed Vegetable is a one woman show in development, written and performed by Anoushka Ratnarajah, exploring what it means to be queer, femme and mixed race growing up in a small white town in Western Canada. Delving into histories of migration, displacement and diaspora, and using dance, song, and stand up comedy, Mixed Vegetable asks what it means to be “authentically” rooted in culture and how to maintain ties in a world of assimilation.
