About the Show
I am Mixed, A Series Of Immersive Theatrical Performances

for

I am Mixed is a unique storytelling experience where the audience are invited into Siara's family history with food.

 

 

Siara is a blend of South Asian, British Irish, Italian, Mongolian Portuguese and Scandinavian...according to her ancestry DNA test results.

Siara's colourful ethnic profile was reflected in many family habits throughout her childhood and adolescence but most prominent was food; South Asian and Irish Cuisine in particular. Food was used to celebrate, comfort and unite the family against the prejudice of the outside world. 

Siara tells stories that reflect on the diaspora experienced throughout the generations of her family from opposite ends of the globe and how food became a way to communicate tradition, love, support and tribe.

I am Mixed-A Door Step Delivery, is inspired by the loss of Live performance due to the covid-19 pandemic.
The concept evolved from the way in which people managed the monotony of lockdown with; takeaways and those cherished socially distanced, 10 minute garden visit's to loved ones. 
Order your meal, book your time slot and wait for Siara to turn up.  Siara performs a short story on your doorstep, (at a social distance) then leaves you to enjoy the meal and reflect on the experiences shared (one house hold can order three meals, each meal is served with a 10 minute story).
