ASIAN VOICES: HARDEEP SINGH KOHLI
The co-adapter, with director Jatinder Verma, of Moliere’s The Miser, now renamed as Kanjoos (Tara Arts, currently touring), talks to Suman Bhuchar about this re-imagining of the classic, which is set in the money-mad maelstrom of modern Mumbai. Recording quality: some background noise. Recorded in Hackney, 7 February 2013.
This is very much a Punjabi production, and I think that’s what’s so exciting about what’s happening in brown arts, just now, we’re starting to break down brushstroke terms like “Asian”.
