Event description

Description

Awkward Conversations offers one-on-one conversations in experimental formats, tackling anxieties, habits and hard-to-talk about subjects like mental health.

Sometimes the best conversations are awkward. What if you say the wrong thing? What if you make too much eye contact? Or not enough? What if nothing is spoken at all? Or your conversational partner is unlike anyone you have ever met before?

Awkward Conversations is a program of one-to-one conversations that extends what constitutes a conversation.

Come and enjoy not talking to different people and instead have your crown drawn, have an argument with someone unexpected, sit in silence, or talk through gesture about the experience of being different.

Bhenji Ra

Bhenji dances as resistance, her body is her protest. Bhenji Ra is a trans woman of colour, she negotiates her identity at the intersection of body dysmorphia and gender dysphoria through dance, choreography, and her community practice hosting balls and performance events.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Be seen with Bhenji and understand her experience of visibility in the public domain. Hear her speak and learn from her journey.
