Irfan Malik – Surrey Muse


Irfan Malik is a South Asian American poet who contemplates the delicate nuances of inner life as it expresses itself when experiencing the limits placed by structured environments. He has published four collections of Punjabi poetry, the most recent being ‘Dooji Aurat” (The Other Woman). His current projects include translation in Punjabi of Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) in collaboration with a Spanish writer.

Irfan writes poetry and prose in Punjabi, Swedish, English and Urdu.

His second love is theatre, and to nurture it, he has founded South Asian American Theatre (SAATH) at Harvard University. He has directed many stage plays including Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues.

At this time, he is visiting Vancouver from Boston to share his work.
