What would you do if your life-long home turns into a living hell?
Noor and Amrit find themselves thrown together while madness is let loose on earth when India and Pakistan are born out of a bloody partition in 1947. As with millions of others, their lives are turned upside down and they are forced to make decisions that they would rather not.
15th August 1947, 0.00 Midnight: two nations were born. Up to 15 million people crossed the newly created borders to what they hoped was safety. In the process, hundreds of thousands were abused, abducted and killed. Silent Sisters is back due to popular demand with an extended performance together with Brothers Unhinged, on memories of partition in Punjab and Bengal in 1947.
With extraordinary stories from ordinary people, Silent Sisters-Brothers Unhinged evoke their experiences, crafted out of fragments of texts, oral histories, and the force of imagination.
Performances took place at Rich Mix London and Crawley Hawth in November 2017.
