Dawaat at Queen's Market
Dawaat is an extraordinary event popping up across London.
Driven by the sharing of food, poetry, live music and spoken word, Dawaat is a performance that will flood the senses and shift perspectives. Pull up a seat at the dining table and feast with attendees as we celebrate 50 years of independence.
Working closely with Bangladeshi diaspora communities in London, Tara Theatre’s Artistic Director Abdul Shayek has 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.
DAWAAT is a Tara Theatre production presented in partnership with the Royal Docks Team and supported by the Mayor of London as part of the Let’s Do London campaign.
