My father says it’s impossible for people like us, he says that I’m fine because we can’t be mentally ill. My mother says people like us weren’t gay until they came to our continent. That’s a white people thing. It’s a white people thing. It’s a white people. It’s a white people thing. It’s a white people thing. WHITE is devised performance pice that explores the experiences of existence deemed colonial imports within communities of colour. It explores the intersections of queerness, race and mental illness through movement and performance poetry.
