BURQ OFF! an autobiographical one-woman show written and performed by Nadia P Manzoor, is a jaunty tour through madly opposing worlds.
The glowing promise of modern London versus the glum realities of a conservative Pakistani Muslim home are punctuated by fierce Bollywood dance moves and at least one blackout drinking incident.
Embodying 21 different characters a domineering father, soulful mum, saucy English friend and Islamic studies teachers whose interests range from slapping to pornography Nadia illuminates her conflicted sense of identity while questioning repressive cultural norms.
Moving, funny, deeply personal and yet universal, BURQ OFF! explores what it takes to evolve past the veil.
Written and Performed by Nadia P Manzoor
Directed & Developed by Tara Elliott
We are looking forward to seeing you at BURQ OFF! show,
