“The Sikh Research Institute is excited to launch the play Kultar’s Mime to facilitate conversation on 1984 among masses to invoke Guru Nanak’s sensitivity to suffering, especially in genocidal campaigns,” says Harinder Singh, SikhRI’s CEO. Envisioned and produced by playwrights Sarbpreet Singh and J. Mehr Kaur, the play is being staged in Boston on 28 September 2014.

Kultar’s Mime, the play, synthesizes the sufferings of innocent victims of organized violence, separated by thousands of miles, numerous years and insurmountable differences of religion, language and culture. Drawing upon the raw imagery of both poems, it tells a story of human suffering and courage, reminding us that in the end all innocent victims are the same, regardless of which God they worship and what tongues they speak."
