About the Production
Undesirable Elements: A/P/A is an interview-based theater production featuring the first-hand stories of five residents of New York City who are of Asian descent. The production was developed during a residency at New York University’s Asian/Pacific/American Studies Program & Institute. Featuring New Yorkers with origins in China, Japan, Afghanistan, Tonga, and the Philippines, the production seeks to break down stereotypes and engage in community dialogue by showcasing the real-life stories that might not otherwise be heard.
