Institute of Modern Art says
Launching our First Thursdays program for the year, performance artist Shahmen Suku will take over the IMA courtyard as his persona Radha La Bia. Suku is a performance artist based in Sydney, who explores racial and cultural identity, gender roles, the home and kitchen, food and storytelling. Growing up in a modern matriarchal Indian family in Singapore, Suku processes his feelings of displacement from home as Radha La Bia, the Diva from India, who has entered the country by dubious means.

In her performance, 'The Wedding Banquet (கல்யாண சமையல்சாதம்)', La Bia translates the experiences and pomp of an Indian wedding banquet into an evening of story and ritual. Joined by Boy Venus, the performance will climax with a monumental Indian dance floor.

To join us for this unmissable evening book your ticket through eventbrite:
