Me & The Other – Performances on Gender
An evening of performance poetry, music, stand-up and readings, ‘Me and the Other’ is an attempt to open forum for a dialogue on gender. Through performances, music and an art exhibition, we explore ‘Gender’.
It is a serious topic which needs to be talked about more. But that doesn’t mean we have to preachy, where’s the fun in that, right?
The conversation hits some pretty heavy notes and also very light ones, but the entire effort is to reclaim this conversation out of virtual living rooms on facebook and bring it in a room full of real people. It’s an effort to have difficult conversations through an easy format, hopefully easing us into subjects we rarely dare to tread. Let’s open some doors in our minds; Let’s becomes a little more free; Let’s talk.
This performance is now in its second edition. The first one addressed issues around feminism, patriarchy and our role in society. In the second edition, artists who identify themselves as cis, trans, nonbinary and gay share their artistic experiences.
If you are an artist and have something to contribute to this topic, send us your proposal.
