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.

As the first Aussie Sikh story to hit our stages, this is unique and unmissable.


5 stars out of 5 ★★★★★

Fully Sikh arrives, perfectly formed, at the intersections of culture, faith and humanity and asks that we listen.


Imbued with a glittering originality… the show is a vibrant showcase of Sikh culture, resounding with warmth and inclusivity.

The Australian

Fully Sikh is an immersive theatre experience that will stay in my heart for a long time. And it is difficult to imagine a better way to mark this first collaboration between Black Swan State Theatre and Barking Gecko Theatre Company

The West Australian

Fully Sikh is a fitting show to be the last of this decade for Black Swan and Barking Gecko Theatre. Funny, relevant and utterly thought provoking, it paints a portrait of multicultural Australia in an intimate way previously exclusively reserved in theatre for the portrayal of Anglo-Australian culture.
