We’re incredibly excited to bring back our Holi Festival this year! With all the challenges and uncertainty of the last year, there’s no better way to let loose and have fun than with a splash of colour.
We’ll have stalls featuring goodies by South Asian women, cultural performances, games and music. Holi colours will be provided at a small cost, so make sure to wear clothes that can get messy, sweaty and coloured. There’ll be some small snacks available but we recommend you BYO food picnic style.
Bring your friends and family for a day of fun, laughter and community. Register for this free event – we have limited spots available.
Where: Barkly Gardens Richmond, East Memorial Site
When: 19th March 12pm-4pm
Tickets: Free but make sure to register as we have limited availability
Aparna is a writer, visual artist, and performer. She has co-created and performed in two feminist shows incorporating South Asian music and dance in Melbourne: The Colour of Desire (2018), a showcase that explored female desire in South Asian poetry and song, and Nautch (2019), a theatre-style show about the impact of colonialism on the South Asian female art.
At our event, Aparna will be performing kathak on the theme of Holi.
Sunanda was created in New Delhi, corrupted in Bangkok, came out in New York and came out (as a comedian) in Los Angeles, so don’t ask them ‘where’re you from’. Sunanda moved to Melbourne two years ago for love so, let’s hope they at least stay together cuz they’ve blown their savings at Ishka (problematic, we all know). Broadsheet named their Fringe 2020 show, “Yes, We Tan!” their top comedy pick.
“[Sunanda is] a magnetic and funny performer with such a commanding and unique comedic voice.” – Lucia Aniello, Emmy-award winning Writer/Director of “Hacks”
