Admission is free when you register on Eventbrite! Kultar's Mime is a devised play that blends painting, poetry, theater and music to tell the stories of Sikh children who survived the 1984 Delhi massacre that was organized in the wake of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination. A collective of young Jewish artists decides to commemorate a1903 Pogrom that targeted Jews in the Russian town of Kishinev. During their journey, they learn about the 1984 massacre of the Sikhs in Delhi and in a powerful moment of embracing the pain of the 'other', they shift focus and decide to tell a story that the world has largely ignored. The play incorporates text from two poems : "Kultar's Mime" by Sarbpreet Singh and "In The City Of Slaughter" by Haim Bialik. Kultar's Mime comes to Salt Lake City after 36 acclaimed performances all over the world. The play is a powerful condemnation of intolerance and violence, which affirms that just as hatred can transcend culture, religion and geography, so can compassion. Kultar's Mime is directed by J Mehr Kaur, who attends Smith College and is being presented worldwide by The Sikh Research Institute.
