So what do you think of the state of your country today?

Overview

Some people say it’s about needing British values. Some people say it’s not about intolerance, it’s about not tolerating intolerance. Some people say they don’t mind change but it’s happening too fast. Some people say we need to decolonise, get back to the true India. 

And what do you say?

Know that feeling like you can’t say anything? Like you don’t know what you could say? Like you don’t want anyone to start shouting, or tweeting 25 tweet threads at you?

And what do you feel?

When they tell you you’re not Indian. When they ask you, quietly, politely, still holding your passport, to step to one side. When they tell you you’re not British. When they say you’re a terrorist. When they add your name, without you noticing, to a list.

It’s not right, violence. But then maybe sometimes, just sometimes, you feel like it is.

Motherland – punching fascists in the face through the medium of drag.

Warning: this is a visceral full bodied dragged up queertastic howl of a show, and it makes no apology for it.
