Log Kya Kahenge, a staged reading
written by Aamera Siddiqui
directed by Suzy Messerole
Aamera Siddiqui co-presented Cloth at Dreamland Arts in February 2017
The Khan family is the perfect family with the perfect eldest daughter (let’s not talk about the younger one). But beneath the veneer of perfection lies a secret they don’t want to confront. Log Kya Kahenge explores mental health stigma, a health care system that isn’t culturally responsive and what happens when “What will people say?” becomes the gauge by which you live your life.
Aamera is a fiscal year 2018 recipient of an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

In Dream of Owls, Little Theo is drifting off to sleep when he is frightened by a hooting sound. His father shows him how to overcome his fear by naming it.

Dream of Owls is a show focused on owls and how to overcome your fear by learning about it.

The Cool Train
a solo performance by Lunga Sinuka
Written by Lunga Sinuka and Zaraawar Mistry
Directed by Zaraawar Mistry
The Cool Train was first presented at Dreamland Arts in 2009.
Lunga Sinuka speaks with Euan Kerr on MPR
The Cool Train is Lunga Sinuka’s memoir of growing up in South Africa during the repressive era of Apartheid. From his childhood in a Xhosa village with no electricity or running water, to working as a glass cleaner at one of South Africa’s best hotels, and eventually joining the African National Congress in the violent struggle for freedom, Lunga’s journey reflects the lives of many black South Africans before the end of Apartheid in 1994. The Cool Train is a one-man storytelling piece, told through songs and stories filled with warmth, humor and love. Recommended for ages 13+.
Lunga Sinuka was born in South Africa and emigrated to the United States in 1992. He has a B.A. in Public Administration from Cape University of Technology in South Africa and a B.A. in Business Management from Hope College in Michigan. In America, he is currently involved in health care, social services, and social justice. The Cool Train is his first play.
