WINTER MAIN STAGE
inspired by the story “Pali” by bhisham sahn directed by suhaila meera
Four-year-old Pali is separated from his Hindu family during the chaos of India’s 1947 Partition. Left behind in newly-formed Pakistan, he is adopted by a kind Muslim couple, with whom he lives for seven years — until one day, his biological father arrives to bring him back to India. Caught between two nations, two religions, two families, and two names, Pali/Altaf embodies the violence of colonialism and its aftermath.
