Women of The Mahabharata - A Sharing
Join us for an evening of readings and music; reclaiming India's great epic The Mahabharata
Thursday 31 May
From the queen who blinded herself to the woman who defied death, seven writers and a singer/songwriter share works-in-progress on iconic female characters from The Mahabharata - India's great epic of humanity - as part of Tara's ongoing focus on reclaiming classics.
A sharing of writings by Kamila Shamsie, Preti Taneja, Razia Iqbal, Grace Nichols, Yasmine Rana, Sohini Alam and Amrit Kaur Lohia, performed by a cast of accomplished actors and musicians.
