British-Indian actor Kal Mansoor has always reflected on the film industry’s one-sided and homogeneous interpretations of history throughout his career. Mansoor believes that the lack of visible South Asian faces in pop culture in the Protected content and Protected content was one reason he wanted to be “anything but an Indian Muslim kid” growing up.

In Protected content began writing a stand-up routine that eventually became his one-man show, “A Brief History of Colonization,” which made its world premiere in January in New York City.

The show sees Mansoor running through India’s history while also imagining what it would be like to create a feature film dramatizing the whole thing. The show details the creation of an increasingly nonsensical film in which famous white actors are cast as major figures in Indian and colonial history. Interspersed throughout are stories about Mansoor’s own family’s history and his personal experiences as an actor over the last 15 years.

We will go out for drinks after the show. I will disclose the venue, ONLY to those who actually attend the performance.
