This contemporary dance choreography is going to be about female harassment in our society. According to the title, it is a statement which will enlighten the audience regarding what actually a girl goes through when something happens against her will. The performance will speak about their inner thoughts which they can't speak out so easily. In the performance, we will use different types of dance style like Kathak, Bharatnatyam, folk etc. but the process of choreography will be contemporary. There will be the use of different dialogues, and a few songs as background music to relate to the concept and subliminal message. Tickets are priced at Tk 100.

**Free for EMK Center and American Center members upon showing ID.

More than a year ago, a startled international community watched a dramatic humanitarian crisis unfold on the north-eastern edge of the Bay of Bengal. In a matter of weeks, thousands of desperate and terrorised people — 60 percent of them children — poured across the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh, bringing with them accounts of unspeakable violence and brutality that had forced them to flee. UNICEF has been on the ground in southern Bangladesh since the onset of the crisis as part of a coalition of national and international agencies. With a collection of photographs taken by internationally acclaimed photographer Patrick Brown during the last one year showcasing initial influx, the resilience of the Rohingya, the host community, emergency mitigation measures, and international support to the Rohingya people.



Date: 11 December – 19 December

Time: 6PM

Venue: Drik Gallery, House 58, Road 15 A, Dhanmondi, Dhaka 1209

In February 2018 eight Bangladeshi women, working in Dhaka's garment and textile industry, participated in a four-week photography workshop. They learned photography skills, and documented their daily lives following a collective process of sharing, discussing and reflecting on their images. You are invited to 'flip' the images to continue this dialogue. Absolutely apt for Sabrina Asche, a German artist, based in both Leipzig and Dhaka since 2014. Weaving the threads of globalisation, female employment, and textiles, her works are a tapestry of objects, performances, and photographic images that stitch together both the conceptual and the documentative.
