A devised play by J. Mehr Kaur and Sarbpreet Singh articulating the stories of indescribable pain, frustration and shame experienced by the Sikh community during the 1984 Sikh Pogroms. It uses the stage, imagery, prose and poetry to communicate the anguish, frustration, lack of justice. It speaks to the indomitable spirit of human beings to stand up, speak up and let those who have fallen be counted. It is a voice of dissent against the silent submission by those inside and outside of the community. More specifically, the play is a journey into the wounded world of the children of the October-November 1984 carnage. The actors effectively depict the inexpressible pain of muted victims and survivors of 1984 in haunted verse combined with melancholy, melodious music.
This presentation of “Kultar’s Mime” is co-sponsored by the Sikh Research Institute and Seattle University’s School of Theology & Ministry.
