An attempt to open dialogue on gender, ‘Me and the Other’ is an evening of performance poetry, music, stand-up and readings slated to happen at Harkat Studios in Versova. Expect to see rapper Sofia Ashraf, performance poet Aranya Johar, writer Annie Zaidi, writer and director Devashish Makhija, poets and spoken word artist group Sexonomics including, actor Priyanka Charan, educator and performer Lopa Shah and standup comedian and writer Shashank Mehta.
The conversation will be hitting some pretty heavy notes and also 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. The tickets are priced at INR 350.
