Genesia Kalsi opens in “Immigration Crisis: The Musical” at Camden People’s Theatre tonight.
Why is pasta from a can a thing? Immigration Crisis: The Musical is a performance that explores the lives of five women who have just moved into a new house together; immigrants, third-generation immigrants and British tenants joined by their move to Sheffield. As food unites these women, their cultures and differences begin to meet at the dinner table. Exploring different heritages, political beliefs and lifestyles, together they confront the realities of navigating through life in the UK as an immigrant; from discovering that tinned cans of spaghetti exist, to setting up a bank account as a foreigner and dealing with issues of national identity. These women make light of the struggles they face, the assumptions made about them and the stereotypes they have to fight every day.
