This book is part of an ongoing project running for over two years, involving a series of workshops bringing together South Asian women with the objective of sharing their stories. The workshops culminated in a theatre performance at Rich Mix, Shoreditch. The response was so positive that the project is now being shaped further, to involve bigger South Asian female audiences.
Here's what the audience said:
"Moving, hilarious, shocking, sad, illuminating, brilliant…"
"It's the closest I've seen my identity represented on stage, and that's anywhere in the world!"
"Masala Monologues is urgent, relevant and radical. These are unheard stories coming from the lips of all too often unheard women, so start listening!"
"Soul Sutras is challenging us, bringing often untold stories front and centre and giving South Asian women a platform to challenge the world we live in."
