Kultar’s Mime: The Hidden Story of the 1984 Delhi Pogrom as Told by a Jewish Art Collective

Cosponsored Event

You are invited to the Harvard performance of Kultar’s Mime, a play that blends painting, poetry, theater and music to tell the stories of Sikh children who survived the 1984 Delhi massacre that was organized in the wake of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination. A collective of young Jewish artists decides to commemorate a 1903 Pogrom that targeted Jews in the Russian town of Kishinev. During their journey, they learn about the 1984 massacre of the Sikhs in Delhi and in a powerful moment of embracing the pain of the ‘other’, they shift focus and decide to tell a story that the world has largely ignored. The play incorporates text from two poems: Kultar’s Mime by Sarbpreet Singh and In The City Of Slaughter by Haim Bialik. The play, an unequivocal condemnation of sectarian violence and genocide, has evoked a powerful reaction from audiences all over the world that has affirmed the power of compassion to break the cycle of hatred that continues to plague humanity to this day. So far the play has been presented 75 times in 6 countries and has been seen by 15,000+. It brings a message of inclusion and compassion that is much needed in the troubled times we live in and has been hailed by Interfaith audiences all over the world.
