Call-out for performers: Engorged – fucking (with) the maternal

This is a call-out for performers, spoken word artists, singers, dancers, artists, queerdos, weirdos, sex workers, and amateur first-timers to brave the stage with me in late November/early December in Sydney. I am a smutty spoken word artist and I have a PhD in queer leather mummies and the erotic maternal body. I am single and expecting my first baby in January (hence the title of the night!), and I want to put on a night of entertainment that explores the queering of/fucking with the maternal in all its wonderful, perverse, transgressive, subversive beauty. People of all gender and sexual identities are encouraged to perform, and you definitely DO NOT have to be a parent. Art work on the theme also totally welcome. Possible topics to consider:

Queer fertility/infertility, sex work and parenthood, leather mummies, trans pregnancy, sex and pregnancy, fat and fertility/pregnancy, childless maternal bodies and sexualities, assisted reproduction, race and reproduction, single parenthood, induced lactation, differently abled bodies and pregnancy, gaybies, sex and parenthood, sex and IVF!

I want the night to reflect the multitude of experiences people outside of the norm have with mothering, fathering, parenting, reproduction, non-biological parenthood, choosing NOT to procreate, chosen families and kink families. I’m really really open to any interpretations of the theme, so please don’t be shy. Send me an email at stollyholly@hotmail.com to get involved, and please feel free to spread the word!

I also want the night to be as accessible to parents as possible, and so a portion of the proceeds from the night will be used to cover suitable childcare for those who pre-book.
