Presented by Afreena Islam

“When I was little, I used to hang out at my dad’s restaurant every weekend, back when they used to stay open until 5am. After a hard days toil running round like I owned the place for a bit, I would fall asleep to the CCTV; my body on the chest freezer, and my head resting on a pile of tablecloths.”

Daughters of the Curry Revolution is an exploration into Afreena’s dad’s life; from his journey to this country, to his journey to this day.

Afreena’s father is an illiterate Muslim immigrant called Michael. He left home when he was 8, and came to England when he was 22. He worked for about 65 years, retired, and then had a brain hemorrhage. He’s 84 now.

Afreena is a first generation Mancunian Bangladeshi called Afreena. She tried to leave home a few times, but the smell of her mums curry always led me back. She’s the last child (as far as she knows) born to her dad. She’s 25 now.

Please note, this performance takes place off-site at Hopscotch Asian Women’s Centre. Please meet at CPT 15 minutes before the start of the performance. 

About the artist

Afreena calls herself an artist only when she’s got something to say. The rest of the time she project manages stuff, researchs stuff, performs in stuff, facilitates stuff, and sits on boards and eat posh sandwiches. This is her first solo work.
