I bring news that the Sikh Community of Cincinnati is hosting Kultar's Mime for a night of theater and discussion on Saturday, April 1st, 2017, 1:00 PM at the Aronoff Center. Directed by J. Mehr Kaur, Kultar's Mime is a critically acclaimed theater production which has been shown in 73+ different cities across the world.
Bookmarked by two poems: Kultar’s Mime by Sarbpreet Singh and In the City of Slaughter by Haim Bialik, this play explores the effects of state-sponsored genocide in the Sikh and Jewish communities by bringing the story of five Jewish students, who discover a deaf and mute Sikh boy, traumatized by the violence of 1984 Sikh pogroms, to life. It is a story of trauma, reconciliation, and resilience that many minority communities, are all too familiar with. Most importantly, it is a powerful condemnation of intolerance and violence, which affirms that just as hatred can transcend culture, religion, and geography, so can compassion. I believe everyone - no matter their background- can learn something from this play.
Through our collective efforts, this event will bring together the larger Cincinnati (interfaith & secular) community to explore Jewish and Sikh histories and draw insights to navigate the complexities of today's volatile political and social environment.
