Mama’s Saris – storytelling for children

Event details

Surtal Arts is pleased to offer this event as part of our DERBY Season of Light celebrations (

Enjoy ‘Mama’s Sari’ an interactive storytelling performance about a young girl when she eyes her mother’s suitcase full of gorgeous saris, she decides that she, too, should wear one, even though she is too young for such clothing. When the mother finally realises how important it is for her little girl to feel like a big girl on her seventh birthday, she dresses up her daughter. Mama’s Saris captures an elegant snapshot of every child’s wish to play dress up. This beautiful story will be reimagined and is told through drama, gestures and props and at the end children can dress up and ask questions.
