Event Details

Two enemy soldiers, killed in battle, embark on a journey into the afterlife with the help of an endearing Postman Aunty and her pet Goldfish. Set in a cold, mountainous landscape, where a border cuts through no man’s land, the Postman Aunty operates out of a makeshift post office that serves mail to both sides of the conflict. As the soldiers navigate the trials and tests of the afterlife, letters from the war unfold, scars begin to heal and peace feels close like a spring morning. Filled with elements of mask work, contemporary dance and puppetry, ‘The Far Post’ will transport you to a magical realm. The music, created by the Sikkimese band Sofiyum, blends Lepcha folk and contemporary sounds to create a distinct and captivating world in the snowy mountains. The play is in Lepcha – a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in parts of India, Nepal and Bhutan by about 66,730 people. In 2011 there were 47,300 Lepcha speakers in Dzongu district of Sikkim state, and in Kalimpong and Darjeeling in West Bengal in the north east of India.
