Performance and Interactive Workshop
Focusing on the separation from homeland and longing for it in the context of partition of India in 1947, Mazhar Tirmazi's A Lifetime on Tiptoes showcases syncretic cultural values and human interaction that can forge connections in a world marred by prejudice, communalism, and violence. It focuses primarily on a mother's memories and longing for her home.
