"My life is not separate from my work," declares Shishir Kurup. "My art is who I am. I'm constantly struggling with assimilation. Who am I? Where am I going? Why? These questions are being asked by the non-professionals in 'Ghurba.' They're the same questions I ask myself, every day." Answers may be forthcoming Thursday, when Kurup's multimedia show about local Arab-Americans premieres at UCLA's MacGowan Hall.

Image is everything, and this isn't good for the new leader's image. Here it is, two weeks before the Democratic National Convention, and a dead body lies rotting in Pershing Square. It's the body of Polyneices, denied burial by the new ruler of the land, the media-mogul-turned-politician Krayon. (Think Bill Gates or Rupert Murdoch after one too many antitrust lawsuits.) Antigone, sister of Polyneices, knows what she must do.

It is "a new theatrical construction, built at the intersection of performance and community dialogue." And, as zoning variance hearings go, it's fairly intriguing. The audience members enter the performance as concerned citizens from a specific neighborhood.
