AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa shot to fame in Australia and around the world with her poetry on Australia's Got Talent. But before she went viral, Sukhjit was a brown, hairy Sikh girl growing up in the suburbs of Perth. Fully Sikh is her story.

'The show is a hilarious and heartfelt poetic procession through Sukhjit's life, her family and her faith, all told with her trademark lyrical flow. Fully Sikh will be a sensory feast for audiences, full of music, dance, poetry and food.'
