Pravesh Kumar

Artistic Director, Rifco Theatre

Vidhu’s often political and lyrical spoken words touch your soul and move you. We invited her to open our 2nd British Asian Festival with a new commission ‘I am British Asian’.  Vidhu has been mentoring our Rifco Associate, Daya Bharj. The transformation in Daya’s confidence and performance has just been staggering. Bananasharma is one to watch, she delivers an alchemy of words.
