About Amma

Bangladeshi women’s experiences of the War of Independence take centre stage in this thought-provoking production, allowing audiences to experience first-hand what it was like to experience the war and in turn, leave for the UK in the 1970s and 80s to build a new life. Developed from artist-led story-gathering workshops with local Bangladeshi women in Birmingham, Walsall, Manchester and London, Tara Theatre has rigorously collected testimonies that show what it was like to live through the War of Independence of Bangladesh. Kamal Kaan has scripted this oral history into a unique virtual reality performance preserving the voices that led to independence for future generations. Amma is supported by the National Theatre Immersive Storytelling Studio.
