A double-bill of two powerful, South Asian, female-led shows.
Examining sex, periods, abortion and the “good Indian girl”, this compendium reflects on culture, society, feminism in British-Indian culture, and the challenges faced by South Asian women from different generations. How much have things changed and how much are we still fighting for?
OM SHANTI F*CK
Ambika finds herself in bloody-embarrassing hell, when she gets up to find she’s left a period stain on the carpet of a sacred Hindu temple. Should this be a big deal in 2018? Ambika questions the strange myths of Indian culture and the sexist taboos that have made her feel inadequate to be a woman all her life.
Using music and dance to explore the impact of cultural identity and stigma around mental health in the Indian community. Doll Face is a gut wrenching but hopeful account of a single Indian female in an abortion clinic reflecting on her upbringing, culture and the reality of trying to have it all.
