Bus Stop Bangladesh Part I Serves Diverse Audience
We showed the Storytelling Saris to the public for the first time on June 4, 2013 with a performance at Mt. Rainier City Hall in front of a bus stop, just outside Washington DC. It was a beautiful day and I presented the saris and stories of Hawa, Hasina, Nasima, and Salma. I was wearing a red sari from the project. One young man from the neighborhood helped us hang saris and said, “It is so great that you are doing this. We really need this in our community.” We covered the bus shelter with saris and people waiting for the bus could enjoy them and listen to the soundtrack of Katakhali village sounds and my presentation of the women’s stories. We also gave out postcards with photos and biographies of the four women. It was a very interesting and engaging experience for me to interact with people in the street.
