About this Event

Number 4 by Asma Elbadawi

Directed by Kash Arshad

Fatima and Sarah are BFFs, part of their basketball team’s starting 5. But when new girl Wafa arrives things get upset on and off the court. Poetry and passion combine to tell a story of friendship, identity, body image, and basketball.

Asma Elbadawi is a British Sudanese poet, basketball player and a global Adidas Brand Ambassador. Her dual cultural heritage deeply influences her creativity paired with international development and female empowerment.

Pashto Thriller by Aina J Khan

Directed by Alex Chisholm

It’s 1980s and Hawa Jaan is struggling with having to wear a shalwar kameez to school, and her secret love of Michael Jackson. When Bibi comes to visit from Pakistan, grandmother and granddaughter find more in common than they thought.

Aina J Khan is a writer and journalist who has been published in The Guardian, Al Jazeera English, VOGUE Arabia, Financial Times, and VICE Munchies. Raised in west London, she moved to west Bradford at 15, and has been straddling the north and south ever since.
