A retrospective lens into the greatest mass displacement in human history.

On the 70th anniversary of the Partition, EnActe Arts and Noorani Dance brings you, through dance, music and storytelling, the true life stories of the people who lived through the Partition of Greater India into India, Pakistan and subsequently Bangladesh.

The Parting is inspired by true stories from witnesses of the 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan. A multi sensory presentation performed through theater, dance, music and visual design, The Parting will premiere in San Francisco presented by Z Space and in San Jose at the Hammer Theater, produced by EnActe Arts and Noorani Dance with [insert dynamic adjective] Vinita Sud Belani at the helm. Written and directed by Salil Singh, dance and music direction by Farah Yasmeen Shaikh, an original score composed by Raaginder Singh Momi and visual design by David Murakami. This performance is a chance to reflect on this pivotal and tragic time in the history of South Asia, and provoke dialogue across generations, borders, genders, ethnicities and religions.
