“You cannot hold anything I say against me. I have legally obtained a visa for your country and haven’t been blacklisted…yet.”


Immigration sucks.


When Almitra was 19 she made a deal with her Ma. She needed to leave Pakistan to have a better future. The two things stopping her? Her unique passport… and bloody Canada.

With original music and lyrics written and performed by Almitra Mavalvala, Musical Direction by Tim Cunniffe, with Direction and Dramaturgy by Bernadette Fam, Blacklisted is a searing and cheeky new cabaret about immigration, racial profiling, and the journey home.

Backed by an intimate live band including sitar player Sarita McHarg, join Almitra on a musical voyage from the rooftops of Karachi to the soft sands of Coogee during a true-life hour of compelling storytelling.
