Barking Gecko Theatre
and Black Swan Theatre Company present Fully Sikh, a new Australian work by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa, one of Australia’s most talented and celebrated spoken word artists. This world premiere will run from October 10 – October 24, 2019 at the Studio Underground, State Theatre Centre.

Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa’s culture and politics have informed her poetry for years. She made headlines around the globe when she performed a rousing poem confronting racism on Australia’s Got Talent and went on to tour her poetry across Australia and overseas.

Fully Sikh is Sukhjit’s story and marks her highly anticipated theatre debut. Full of music, dance, poetry and food, Fully Sikh is a celebration of family and Sikh culture, with all of its complexity, told with Sukhjit’s lyrical style and flow. It is the story of growing up as a brown, hairy Sikh girl in the Perth suburbs, and features a Punjabi meal cooked live on stage.

Accompanying Sukhjit on stage is the virtuosic musician Pavan Kumar Hari. Pavan’s score moves from 90s power ballads to Sikh hymns played on an array of traditional instruments and kitchen implements.
