Saga Sisterhood

Saturday June 22, 2019
18:00 - 19:30
  • This event has passed.

A group of six women sitting together

Step into a welcoming, informal space where stories about love, loss, life and strife infuse you with laughter and tears.

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 has emerged from a creative development led by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa with the valuable storytelling training by Sisonke Msimang and directing from Shirley Van Sanden.
