Overview

“When I was little, I used to hang out at my dad’s restaurant every weekend, back when they used to stay open until 5am. After a hard days toil running round like I owned the place for a bit, I would fall asleep to the CCTV; my body on the chest freezer, and my head resting on a pile of tablecloths.”

In this intimate performance, Afreena invites you to take a seat around her dinner table as she serves up secondhand stories of her father’s past, present, and what little she imagines is left of his future. Exploring what it means to be her dad’s daughter in the context of the anti-immigration rhetoric she is surrounded by, Afreena follows her dad’s journey to this country, and his journey to this day.

Daughters of the Curry Revolution was developed through support from Divergency and through a hÅb/Contact Works Ahead commission. Works-in-progress have been seen at Domestic II, at Camden People’s Theatre, and at Forest Fringe 2016.

Celebrating International Women's Day

To mark International Women’s Day on March 8, and to celebrate some of the inspiring, creative women working across the arts, we’ve put together a mini-festival of performance and events by women.

Crossing music, theatre, spoken word, talks and comedy, we’ll be presenting some rising talents, free events in the foyer and workshops to take part in.
