We’re off to a fresh start with many exciting events all set to take place. Get ready for another strong dose of laughter as girls from The Auratnaak Show return with a performance dedicated to Qandeel Baloch. All potterheads can be a part of a grand Harry Potter Party being arranged by Liberty Books and Foodies can hold their breath as a food & music festival “Foosic” is soon to kick off. A unique children’s play “Cheeka Peeka Reeka” is being organized by PACC Karachi along with another play “Parday ke Peechay” featuring a new lot of actors and performers. New and experienced shutterbugs can be a part of a workshop taught by Nadeem A. Khan – a renowned photographer in the field for the last three decades known for his fashion and product photography.
1. The Auratnaak Show Returns!
Ten women and two whole hours of doing what they do best, making sandwiches, screaming, fighting and hating on men. Pink will be the color code, of course. Just kidding, these girls do breathe fire but not the kind that will hurt anyone. Promise.
This show is dedicated to Qandeel Baloch and women like her who dare to live life on their own terms – against all odds.
The show will be a repeat performance of their previous show (with only a little bit of tweaking here and there) so don’t come if you already have, and say things like: ‘Aye haye, phir wohi purane jokes le ayein.’ Unless of course, you really really REALLY enjoyed their performance last time and would LOVE to see them again, which I’m sure is the case.
