“Kultar’s Mime” Heads to Scotland
Kultar’s Mime Heads to Scotland
“Kultar’s Mime,” launched by the Sikh Research Institute, is an immersive theatre experience and provides a unique insight into the sufferings of victims of organised violence. The plot follows events separated by time and space but bound by the common suffering and tragedy endured. The play charts a story of the Kishinev pogrom of Jews and the 1984 anti-Sikh genocide in Delhi.
Exploring the cultural and social impact of the Kishinev Pogrom and the anti-Sikh 1984 Pogrom, the Sikh Community of Scotland brings this play to Scotland for the first time.
Charandeep Singh, General Secretary of Glasgow Gurdwara and human rights campaigner said,
“The 1984 Sikh Genocide is rarely spoken or heard about. It has largely been erased from India’s media coverage and this play is an important addition to the global artistic landscape in promoting the message of human rights through art, poetry and drama.
“I am particularly looking forward to hosting this international critically acclaimed production in two of Scotland’s greatest cities: Glasgow and Edinburgh. The Sikh Community of Scotland is fully committed to showcasing the realities of minority communities across the globe, with a view to play a full and active role in creating a better and fairer Scotland and world.”
