MAN O MAN
Mish Grigor

Man O Man is a new residency-made live art work by NSW-based performance maker Mish Grigor. Sitting at the crossroads of performance, artist talk, installation and public meeting, Man O Man starts from the provocation: what would we say, formally, on the last night of patriarchy?

Over the course of a month a team of women write speeches, together and alone. These speeches form a series of imagined futures, with multiple feminisms and disparate ideas. At the conclusion of their time together a town hall meeting is held.

Perhaps it is The Last Night of the World as We Know It. The Arnott’s biscuits are laid out, the urn is turned on. A speaker steps towards the lectern and the conversation begins.

Man O Man is a musing on feminism, the performance of gender and the act of conjuring the future through text and speech. Please join us for the formalities.
