Take-d-milk-headerTake d Milk, Nah? comes to The Cultch from October 16 to 26th, 2019. The production is presented with Diwali BC and is written and performed by Jivesh Parasram.  Jiv is “Canadian” and “Indian” and “Hindu” and “West Indiana” and “Trinidadian” too.  In Take d Milk, Nah?, Parasram blends personal storytelling and ritual then walks his audience through the Hin-do’s and Hin-don’ts at the intersections of these cultures. The show is a candid and funny look at race, religion, and nationalism(s). Jiv dives into what divides us and what things we’re willing to accept in the desire to belong. Oh, and there’s a cow, but of course.   Tickets are $39 and available at The Cultch. Note 7 shows are already sold out. If you are interested in checking out this production, best get your tickets.

VancouverGuldasta_landscapeDiwali BC brings A Vancouver Guldasta to The Cultch. The play is written and directed by Paneet Singh and focuses on the Dhaliwals, a Punjabi family in the early 1980s. In this production, you will witness the family navigate its way through the experience of trauma and violence occurring in Punjab. At the same time their daughter has a complicated friendship with Andy, a Vietnamese refugee teen who is living in their basement. The story takes during the Indian government’s invasion of the “Golden Temple” which is the holiest shrine of the Sikhs. A Vancouver Guldasta allows you to eavesdrop on conversations otherwise reserved only for the privileged ears of living room walls.
