Tongue Tied & Twisted blasts Indian storytelling into the 21st century combining the talents of UK music producer PKCtheFirst on stage with international performer Peter Chand.

Collecting traditional Indian folk tales from fifty South Asian elders, living in the Black Country. These stories, some of them unheard for over 50 years, have finally been documented and used to make a storytelling theatre production and online archive.

Come and experience two distinctive artists bringing a fresh UK twist on traditional tales collected from South Asian elders. This show celebrates the art of live storytelling fused with a unique blend of Urban Hip Hop and classical South Asian sounds. Together, they present a unique audience experience across cultures for both young and old.

#70/70 @ TARA THEATRE
At midnight on 14/15 August 1947, India and Pakistan became independent from the British Empire. A relationship that formally began with Sir Thomas Roe’s embassy to the court of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir in 1615, ended over three centuries later with the independent nations of India and Pakistan.
The Indian sub-continent shaped Britain’s destiny, as much as Britain shaped modern India and Pakistan’s. Tara Theatre marks this extraordinarily intimate relationship through a series of 70 events over the course of the year - plays, music, dance and spoken word that illuminate the connections between the worlds of India, Pakistan and Britain.
“A moment comes which comes but rarely in history,
when we step out from the old to the new…”
Jawaharlal Nehru on 15 August 1947
