Presented by Tribe Arts
The intimate story of a boy from Bradford – Siddique Akbar Ali.
His name may sound foreign, but he’s very, very British. A cup of Yorkshire Tea fills him with comfort and he enjoys all the things a typical 15-year old lad would.
But he has a dark story to tell. His world is about to contort and twist into a nightmare that even he can’t understand, where the people who should love and protect him, take advantage of his naivety and abuse his freedoms.
He is being forced to marry, but he doesn’t know who she is, or what this will mean for him.
Nikah is the inspiring one-man story of endurance, empowerment and the realisation of the self.
Seed commissioned by CPT.
Supported by Arts Council England and Bradford Council.
About the company
Tribe Arts is philosophically inspired, radical-political theatre company based in Leeds/Bradford. We amplify the stories and voices of the current Black and Asian generation and believe theatre needs to be rejuvenated into the 21st-century. We want to cultivate an environment for a renaissance in theatre-making and produce unexpected performances that reach towards transcendental experiences.
