Om Shanti f*ck Doll Face

Battersea Arts Centre · 09 APR - 11 APR

A double bill of two powerful South Asian female-led pieces examining sex, periods, abortion and the 'good Indian girl', this compendium reflects on culture, society and feminism in British-Indian culture and the challenges South Asian women face.

Overview

OM SHANTI F*CK

Ambika finds herself in bloody embarrassing hell, when she gets up to find she's left a period stain on the carpet in a sacred Hindu temple. Big deal?

2018. Sex, periods and the 'goog indian girl'. Ambika questions the strange myths of Indian culture and the sexist taboos that have made her feel inadequate to be a woman all her life.

DOLL FACE

Using music and dance to explore the impact of cultural identity and stigma around mental health in the Indian community. Doll Face is a gut wrenching but hopeful account of a single Indian female in an abortion clinic reflecting on her upbringing, culture and the reality of trying to have it all.
