Event Description: Dastan-E-Jallian, Premiere of A Dastangoi Performance on The Jallianwala Bagh Tragedy of 1919

Presented by Dastangoi Collective

To mark the centenary year of the massacre, this Dastangoi performance recounts the story of one of the most brutal acts of Colonialism in modern history. It draws from various writings across genres – protest poetry in Urdu and Punjabi; writings of Manto and Krishan Chander; speeches of Gandhi, Nehru, and Tagore; and official reports such as the Hunter Commission Report to tell a story that speaks not just of the past, but also of the present

Written by Ainie Farooqui
Performed by Ainie Farooqui and Nusrat Ansari
Directed by Mahmood Farooqui
