Birangona: Brave Woman R&D

Birangona Liberation War Heroine 1971 Bangladesh

In August 2013, Komola was joined by a creative team on a journey to Bangladesh to film Birangona women's firsthand accounts and develop a research and development theatrical piece based on their stories. Three shows were performed at the Liberation War Museum and the EMK Centre in Dhaka. Feedback from these audiences was used to             inform the development of a full production in

                    the UK. The final show toured the UK in                          the spring of 2014, before returning                        to Bangladesh in the winter of 2014.
