THEATRE PERFORMANCES

The stories that took shape at our Masala Monologues® workshops over two years were shaped and transformed into these theatre performances. You’ll see for yourself how creating safe spaces where South Asian womxn can write their personal stories, from their culture – can be so powerful!

“It’s the closest I’ve seen my identity represented on stage, and that’s anywhere in the world.”

Masala Monologues at Rich Mix, East London

This show was performed at Rich Mix, London in April 2019, created by Soul Sutras® in collaboration with Loquitur Theatre. Our fabulous actors: Dee Stephen, Safiyya Ingar, Shireen Farkhoy, Sharita Oomer, Janaki Gerard as well as director Lou-Lou Mason of Loquitur Theatre & associate Amanda Bowen brought such energy and enthusiasm to the stories. The audience loved it, the feedback was super positive.

“I’ve never seen roles like this for South Asian female actors. And I’ve worked in this business for a while.”
