We are doing somersaults over one of the most exciting British Asian events in London this year! Cut the Bakwaas is an evening of art exploring the social, political and cultural narratives that articulate what it means to be British Asian in 2018. The event will be held on 11th April 2018 at Rich Mix in Shoreditch, London. The Performance Lab, the organisers of Cut the Bakwaas, invites artists from the South Asian diaspora to showcase their work across all disciplines, to celebrate and champion our communities, and to tell our stories in our own tongues. Desi duo Leyya Sattar and Roshni Goyate, co-founders of the award-winning creative platform The Other Box are to host the night! Confirmed artists for the night includes: Reeta Loi (DJ), Tarik Khan, Shareefa Energy, BananaSharma, Mandeep The MC & Passenger Casanova and many more!
The Performance Lab is a collective of ambitious creatives with a mission. Co-founded by Divya Satwani and Vikesh Godhwani…”It is a platform to develop our craft, connect with like-minded artists and make a change in the industry by diversifying the playing field. Each of us connected because we all had a similar vision- we believe that art is powerful. We create space for emerging artists to develop and share their work through producing immersive, experimental multidisciplinary events and workshops across London.”
We look forward to seeing you for an evening showcasing a full spectrum of the British Asian experience. COME AND CUT THE BAKWAAS!
