6pm - Intervention II: Nigga Peace, Kalale Dalton-Lutale and Cason Sharpe (TwoHungryChildren)
Reinterpreting John and Yoko’s staged ‘Bed-In’ for peace at The Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Cason Sharpe and Kalale Dalton-Lutale will insert themselves into a domestic space installation. By exposing the ways that black bodies are both hyper visible and erased, they challenge the dichotomy between a public act and a private ritual. This public recording of the podcast TwoHungryChildren will be followed by a discussion.
Kalale Dalton-Lutale and Cason Sharpe are writers and performers from Toronto currently based in Montreal. Through her work, Kalale explores various modalities of performance as well as narratives that involve intersectional ideas of queer, feminist and racialized experiences. Cason’s work explores themes of race, class and identity construction through humour and camp. In the past, Kalale has had the pleasure of working with Black Theatre Workshop, Playwrights Workshop Montreal and Geordie Productions. Cason’s fiction has appeared in Cosmonauts Avenue and LESTE Magazine. Together they make up the podcast TwoHungryChildren. https://soundcloud.com/twohungrychildren

Organized by articule’s Fabulous Committee, Table Setting is a dinner conversation series seeking to create more spaces at the centre for Indigenous and people of colour artists, educators, activists, and community members to speak with each other. The second iteration features Ojibwe artist Cedar-Eve Peters and invites participants to discover her artistic practice, including the portrait series Cedrus Annum. We will discuss the limitations of cultural representations as well as strategies for reclaiming one’s identity. Bring your own plate and utensils (BYOP). Donations appreciated.
