In our first episode of the JUST THREE podcast, host Catherine LaSota talks with artist, writer, and performer Kayhan Irani, a member of the Migrant Personhood and Rights working group at the Center for the Study of Social Difference.
Kayhan Irani is an Emmy-award winning writer, a performer, and a Theater of the Oppressed trainer. She creates art to build community, offer spaces for healing, and to engage audiences in social justice issues. She is currently working on a new one-woman show, There is a Portal, which asks: Can the story of an Iranian-Indian immigrant offer a space of healing for all Americans?
