Khooghi by Kauser Mukthar
A story of culture, music, family and folk tradition.
This show has something for everyone.
Kauser Mukhthar’s family-friendly show, set within a beautiful toy theatre stage, uses puppetry, music and song to tell a story of humour, tragedy and hope, build around a song and a Kashmiri folk tale, Saif ul Mulooq (The journey of Love), with a brand new script written in both Punjabi and English.
How did cassette letters connect British Pakistanis who came to work in the mills to their families in Azad Kashmir? Khooghi travelled through many generations and to every continent having been brought to life by the Sufi Saint Mian Muhammed Baksh in British India under the shadow of the Empire. Khooghi was brought to England by Alam Lohar, Pakistan’s most famous folk singer, where she found a new home with a little girl in West Yorkshire but now she is in mortal danger from the Hawk and the Hunter and needs your help if she is to survive. Will you come? Will you save Khooghi?
£8.00 – £10.00
