Fully Sikh
Barking Gecko Theatre and Black Swan State Theatre Company present Fully Sikh, by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa

"I’m not the one who’s a freak, I’m fully Sikh."

Fully Sikh is a new Australian work by one of Australia’s most talented and celebrated spoken word artists. 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.

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 Hari. Pavan’s score moves from 90’s power ballads to Sikh hymns played on an array of traditional instruments and kitchen implements.

Fully Sikh is a co-production between Barking Gecko Theatre Company and Black Swan State Theatre Company.
