An immersive play taking you through recent Sikh history
‘Snapshots of Punjab’ is a unique theatrical experience that blurs the lines between space, performer and spectator. Audience members will travel through singularly crafted environments, meeting key characters at pivotal moments from Sikh history and considering fundamental questions about the path to the present.
This event is the first of its kind in our community. An exhilarating introduction to the Sikh story and a provocative challenge to conventional wisdom, ‘Snapshots of Punjab’ finds the intersection between history and art that will strike at the mind and the heart.
I FELT THAT THE OVERALL EVENT WAS VERY POWERFUL AND LED TO ME QUESTIONING AND FEELING THE NEED TO GO BACK AND RESEARCH. . . . WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS GROW AND SHOWN ON A GLOBAL SCALE!
REALLY FELT THE VIBE AND GOT MORE UNDERSTANDING OF HOW OUR HISTORY WAS CARVED IN PUNJAB. SOME OF US LEARN VISUALLY AND THESE TYPE OF EVENTS HELP INSPIRE US TO RESEARCH MORE ABOUT OUR HISTORY.
REALLY EXCELLENT AND INNOVATIVE. SO GLAD WE CAME TO SEE IT. ONE OF THE BEST THINGS WE’VE SEEN ESPECIALLY FROM OUR COMMUNITY. MORE EVENTS LIKE THIS NEEDED.
What is immersive theatre?
Immersive theatre is storytelling on an epic level – it offers audience members an experience that’s more like a real life adventure than an evening at the theatre. Without giving too much away, you will be on your feet for the entire duration of the hour.
How do the timings work?
There are multiple showings of the immersive play throughout each event. It is shown to small groups at intervals of ten minutes. Each group will travel through the production seeing six different characters from Sikh history. The total showing time will last approximately one hour.
Is there an age limit?
The play is aimed at individuals sixteen and older. Children under the age of seven will not be admitted as some rooms may not be suitable.
How big will the groups be?
Groups sizes will vary, but in general will be no larger than eight participants.
