Saga Sisterhood is a transformative performance project for women from communities who identify as South Asian that come from non-performer backgrounds but all have something to say about love, friendship, belonging, family and identity. We are now in the era of political wars against particular identities where the only thing we might have left is our human stories.
This project emerged from a creative development led by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa with the valuable storytelling training by Sisonke Msimang and directing from Shirley Van Sanden. Funded by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries this project was designed to train women of South Asian heritage for live performance with the aim to support new and emerging performers and those who had never considered themselves as potential performers.
We are thrilled to announce that Saga Sisterhood will be jetting off to Melbourne in December 2019, where three storytellers will perform at Mapping Melbourne. Interested in attending? Purchase tickets here.
This fantastic opportunity is in part thanks to the Centre’s supportive community whose tickets at a Special Edition of Bread & Butter contributed to the performers’ airfares.
