About the Production
In Undesirable Elements/Twin Cities explores the first-hand experiences of eight Twin Cities residents from diverse cultural backgrounds. Each cast member shares the unique experiences that brought them to reside in Minnesota. The performers share their own personal stories of war, migration, political oppression, racial discrimination, and family struggles. Their individual stories interweave to create a collective one. Culture, community and identity collide to form a living history on stage.
