ABOUT THIS EVENT

A Black Swan and Barking Gecko Theatre Co-Production 

Fully Sikh by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa 

World Premiere

I'm not the one who's a freak, I'm fully Sikh.

Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa shot to fame in Australia and around the world with her poetry on Australia’s Got Talent. But before she went viral, Sukhjit was a brown, hairy Sikh girl growing up in the suburbs of Perth. Fully Sikh is her story. The show is a hilarious and heartfelt poetic procession through Sukhjit’s life, her family and her faith, all told with her trademark lyrical flow. Fully Sikh will be a sensory feast for audiences, full of music, dance, poetry and food. As the first Aussie Sikh story to hit our stages, this is unique and unmissable.

"Sukhjit’s performance got her a standing ovation from everyone on the show." - Deccan Chronicle
