Description

Sohaya Visions presents Silent Sisters - Brothers Unhinged

Bangla/English I 110 mins I £8/£5 concessionary

This powerful new drama is based on British-Asian memories of partition in 1947. It evokes the experiences the millions of people who crossed new borders to what they hoped was safety. But in the process, hundreds of thousands were abused, abducted and killed. Based in Britain and what is now Bangladesh, Pakistan and India, the drama is a fictional story created out of fragments of people’s memories, written and oral histories, and the force of imagination. It features live singing, poetry, movement and music.

Silent Sisters – Brothers Unhinged focuses on the lives of Noor and Amrit in the west and Jamal and Krishna in the east around the time of the partition of India, their legacies are uncannily brought together in 1980s Britain.

Sohaya Visions is an arts company dedicated to enhancing internationalism and cultural diversity. Established in 2015, it is particularly interested in promoting South and British Asian stories that tackle injustice and discrimination.
