#FEAS The Game Show disrupts hierarchies of academy-based knowledge and brings research about contemporary everyday sexisms to the public with the intention to upend and reposition challenges to everyday sexisms as urgent participatory gameplay.
In a time of local and global political unrest and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the subtleties of ongoing and everyday gender inequalities are easily overshadowed, even though they continue to contribute directly to social and environmental injustices. With this creative development, #FEAS plans to put the spotlight firmly back on the injustices experienced by women and gender diverse people in a theatrical amplification of the current political state of play. They will do this through public pedagogies that make it possible to collectively attend and learn to respond together in times of rapid change. The residency will see #FEAS queering the format of an interactive live TV game show through performance and spin-the-wheel type participatory play, to interrupt the binary politics of win/lose and either/or to propose, try out and refine tools for grappling with complexity and nuance in increasingly divisive times.
