When Nupur and Kate met in Bangalore this year, they had no idea how much they’d have in common. Nupur has a background in poetry, and she has lived half her life in India, and half in Singapore. Kate is more of a theatrical person, she has been doing theatre for a few years now and she comes from New Jersey, USA.
Although Nupur and Kate grew up in such different settings, one thing brought them closer – what it means to be a woman in this day and age. There are a lot of issues that women face on a worldwide level such as domestic violence, toxic relationships, someone else policing your body etc. These are some of the topics Nupur and Kate wanted to talk about, so they decided to put their talents and their voices together to do a show called ‘Two Sanskari Girls’. They put together vignettes of spoken word poetry, drama, dance, music, character work and a lot more in their show.

Their show in Bangalore was a full house, and the performances were bold and moving. Nupur, Kate and their team received a standing ovation at the end of the show. The show told women that they always have a choice. It also told women that they have to take back the ownership of their bodies. It told women that we should be united, and shouldn’t judge other women. All these messages united, and made the women in the audience realise their potential. It was a truly magnificent evening.
