A cultural celebration to mark the 43rd anniversary of Bangladesh’s Independence
One of East London’s most unique venues, The Rich Mix, is hosting a week of arts and cultural activities entitled Freedom Week. Presenting work from some of the very best contemporary artists working within the UK, Bangladesh and beyond, the programme includes live music, theatre, talks, workshops and family activities. Highlights include Birangona: Women Of War, a physical theatre performance interwoven with film and animation about a young woman and the impact the events of 1971 had on her life, a free live performance by Brit Bengali singer Sohini Alam and her band Khiyo and an exhibition by photographer Shahidul Alam.
