Sacred//Profane - A Storytelling Event
PLEASE NOTE THE TIMINGS BELOW FOR YOUR TIME ZONE :)
What happens if we reimagine the South Asian mythology and folklore that we grew up with?
Would they beter reflect the world we now live in? How can we use these myths and stories to interrogate feminism, patriarchy, and the intersectionality of our identities?
What does collaboration across multiple time zones and countries look like? How do various parts of the South Asian diaspora make art? What can we learn from one another?
Held on Saturday, the 24th of October, Sacred//Profane will gather beloved storytellers around the Zoom fireplace to retell and rewrite our stories. Watch these creatives attempt to create new imaginings of everyone from Sohni Mahiwal to Mariamman to Sita to the angel Azrael.
The event will be held at:
8:00PM - 9:30PM IST
10:30PM - 12:00AM MYT
10:30AM - 12:00PM EST
2:30PM - 4:00PM GMT
7:30AM - 9:00AM PST
Doors open 15 minutes before.
Post the storytelling session, we will then host a discussion with the audience to talk about what we witnessed and further dive into the interrogations that took place.
