Faultline

“The anxiety that informs the current debate about Asian youth seems all consuming. For me, this anxiety found its perfect echo in a fragment of music (featuring a much-manipulated soprano voice) that Scanner played me in his studio.”

“At about the same time, I was reading Londonstani by Gautam Malkani, and while it dealt with a slice of British Asian life in Southall, what I connected to most was the mixture of linguistic codes (texting, slang, Punjabi, etc.) which he used to create the voice of his main character.”
— Shobana Jeyasingh

Workshops information

 

Faultline is thoughtful and serious, and, as you’d expect from Jeyasingh, a classy collaboration.

London Evening Standard
 

Fleetly, dazzingly executed, disturbing in what it tells you about another, shadowier, Britain.

The Independent
 

It’s a piece you can watch over and over again, and always see something new.
