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.

Spreading the Love: Pop-Up Cinema Dates

How often do you go to the beach, the pool, or the tram stop and think ‘Gee, this place would ROCK if only I could snuggle in bed, eat candy, and watch arty films’? Well wish no more! Catch Spreading the Love: Pop-Up Cinema as it tours Adelaide’s outdoor spaces. Watch short films revealing local people’s secrets in love. Go to bed with your neighbours; get intimate in public. This is radical relaxation. It’s spreading the love.

I'll be at Tram Stop 6 (south road, under the bridge) 5:30pm on 14th Nov
Unley Swimming Pool 6:30pm on 16th Nov
Henley square 6:30pm on 17th Nov
Marion Swimming Pool 4:30pm on 18th Nov

All are free (Gold coin donation for entry into Unley pool, small charge for entry into Marion pool - but no charge for my show - that's love huh?).

All run for approx 90minutes.

Spreading the Love: Pop-Up Cinema is part of the Feast Festival. The program will be released in a few months. so you heard it here first. Well first.
