A project based on spicy real life stories


Masala Monologues® is based on real-life (anonymous) stories from South Asian women across all ages and backgrounds. These stories come from a series of workshops & interviews where women gather, open up to each other and share. There are funny stories. Sad stories. Sexy stories. The stories are being shaped into a theatre production of Masala Monologues®, a book, an ongoing digital project and well...the world’s our (spicy) oyster.
 

Come along to my next workshop...


Masala Monologues® workshops open up safe spaces to tell our stories, to explore our sexuality within our cultural identity. This is where the magic happens. So join other like-minded women to write your own story. I’ve got a few workshops coming up very soon. Please email me if you’d like future dates & venue details: email@soulsutras.co.uk

Previous workshops

Take a look at previous workshops: we had two seasons of 8 workshops in this gorgeous East London arts centre.

Why Masala Monologues?

Let’s be honest. There are no places for South Asian women to talk about sex & sexuality openly. Certainly not in the culture we come from nor in modern Western culture where we're either seen as asexual creatures or fetishised. Our sexuality is such a fundamental part of our lives as women. However there’s such shame and taboo attached to sex in South Asian culture. It’s time to change that.

 

What kinds of stories?

I’m looking for all sorts of stories. Sad stories. Sexy stories. Weird stories. Sweet stories. Stories not just about sex and sexuality but all those aspects of our lives touched by our sexual selves: coming of age, discovering your sexuality, getting your periods, growing up, growing breasts, losing your virginity, giving birth, growing older… the range of the stories can be as varied as our lives as South Asian women.

 

I’m a bit shy…

Fear not, all your stories will be kept anonymous. So feel free to be as honest and open as you like!

 

What will you do with my story?

Once your stories are collected, chosen and curated, I’ll be working with theatre professionals and actors to create…drum roll please….a theatrical production of MASALA MONOLOGUES®. As well a book & an ongoing digital project.
