Child of the Divide
Summer 1947 and 16 million people are on the move between India and the newly-formed Pakistan. Amid the upheaval young Pali’s fingers slip from his father’s hand, and his destiny changes forever.
Taken in by a Muslim family, he is given a new name, a new faith and a new life. But when his real father returns to claim him, Pali must decide who he is: the Hindu boy he was born to be, the Muslim boy he has become, or simply a child of the divide.
The Truth to Power Cafe
The revolutionary potential of theatre at its best and most direct…’ Guardian
‘The Truth to Power Café’ begins a unique twelve-month exploration into the power of free speech, and political activism as participants of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds have five minutes to speak truth to power before a live audience by responding to the question: ‘Who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?’
Speaking truth to power has its origins in anti-war pacifism, but in this era of post-truth and fake-news is widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or position of trust who don’t want to hear. Is it to your parents, a sibling, a politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, religious leader, boss, banker or simply your best friend? It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.
To be one of six Bradford participants, please write us in a hundred words or less who you are and what you want to say and send to email@example.com by 25th October. We will contact you by 1st November to discuss your entry.
