A Battle for the Soul: Hidden Voices from India’s Past

The first in a series of events that the CTLA project are involved in this year, A Battle for the Soul – Hidden Voices from India’s Past presents narrative snapshots of the lives of young Indian men and women, drawn from recently uncovered autobiography and written testimony.

Theatre artist Annie George presents this rehearsed reading with projections, drawing on recent research at the University of Edinburgh by the CTLA project, documenting stories of personal dilemmas, faith and family conflict at the time of colonial rule in India. The reading will be followed by a discussion exploring some of the issues raised along with refreshments.

The event takes place on Thursday 26 May 2016 at 8.00pm

Location: Storytelling Court, Storytelling Centre 43 – 45 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SR
