Dawaat at Tara Theatre

It’s been 50 years since the birth of Bangladesh, but what does it mean to be of Bangladeshi heritage in the UK today?

Driven by the sharing of food, poetry, live music and spoken word, Dawaat is a performance that will flood the senses and shift perspectives. 

By exploring contrasting narratives and working closely with Bangladeshi diaspora communities in London, we have devised an unforgettable piece of intergenerational theatre that looks at what the 50th anniversary means to the diaspora. 

With female voices firmly at the heart of this production, Dawaat will subvert expectations, challenge mindsets and delight your ears, eyes and taste buds.

Pull up a seat at our dining table and feast with us as we celebrate 50 years of independence.
