Following their critically acclaimed 2019 show Sharbat, Third CultureKids are back with MoR, created by and starring DureshawarKhan. This one woman debut show explores the liminal spacebetween two places: the “middle of the road”. This is not art vscience, east v west, or mother v father; rather an exploration of thatthird space in between. Through storytelling, spoken wordpoetry and science experiments, Khan lovingly shares storiesand lessons of migrant motherhood – inspired by her own mother’sstory. Told in both English and Pashto, MoR is a love letter toevery person we’ve ever called mum.
Dureshawar Khan wanted to make this show because she feels that mothers are the backbone ofmigrant communities.
Third Culture Kids are a multicultural, multilingual and multidisciplinary collective of artists fromPerth. They believe in the power of theatre to bridge cultural divides, choosing to tell stories thatmight otherwise be ignored, forgotten or silenced. Originally planned to take place in August 2020 beforeCOVID-19 intervened, Third Culture Kids are excited to debut MoR at The Blue Room Theatre as one ofthe first performances of their 2021 season.
