How can performance prevent rape?

On-stage performance can help us reimagine what we take for granted. This blog looks at how performance can explore different ways to be a woman or a man, and negotiate relationships that are flexible, fun, and freeing.

I suggest that performance can be used as a tool in rape prevention. I look at how performative methods of rape prevention may build upon and develop other forms of social education that work to end rape, creating possibilites for different ways to engage in intimate relationships.

This blog is a personal, theoretical, and performative exploration of how performance can be used in rape prevention.

Chat Room at the Feast Festival

And we have come full circle.
Chat room on its Feast Festival Spreading the Love tour has come to an end.
I have learnt so much about love. So many people have shared with me honestly and openly. So many people have listened, shared their views, and considered those of other people's.

This is OPEN LOVE!
Love has been spread thickly and lavishlishly.

Chat room in Goodwood

Aren't the kids gorgeous in Goodwood?
I met a diverse crowd at the Goodwood markets, from Breadman to a man with a crocodile and a tawny mouth frog.
Chat Room was another lovely adventure into love!

Chat Room in Marion

Yes, Chat Room has also been to Marion! Jen and I set my bed up in the Marion Cultural Centre and ate cupcakes with some insightful people.
