Sultana’s Reality | Afrah Shafiq | Multimedia Artwork Presentation | August 27th, 2018, 7.30 pm onwards | 6 Assagao

Drawing from the popular short story ‘Sultana’s Dream’ written in 1905 by Begum Rokeya Sakhawat Hossein, Sultana’s Reality takes a trip into history to explore the relationship between women and books in India. Following an Alice in Wonderland style adventure the story is stitched together with accounts of different women – who would rather nap than read, who were stoned in the streets for wearing shoes and carrying umbrellas, who read forbidden texts in secret at night, who read and then challenged the very ideas they read… and those who went on to write books – telling their story in their own words.
