As part of my artist in residence at the Tagore centre – I’ll be having a staged reading of my play: A Tale of Two Sisters on Sunday 1st March at 3pm at Rich Mix.
Written by Sharmila Chauhan Directed by Pooja Ghai
Exploring the birth of the ‘modern’ sari as a representation of female emancipation; Shakti and Seva explores the relationship between society’s ‘good girl’ and
her sexually free, autonomous sister. Traversing 1800 Bengal, to modern day India – this piece charts the seminal history of the feminist movement in India as it begins in the Tagore household and asks what happens when a nation can not agree on what a woman is.
