The SXonomics Show: Hands Up!
Addressing Trigger Topics
Our words shape the story we tell the world about ourselves. Words change lives. They also wound, soothe, negate and elevate. SXonomics looks at how trigger topics (especially ones related to sex and gender) may be addressed in art.
We show who we are in how we present our thoughts. Our speech reflects our age, our gender, our homes and our experiences. It lets us influence other minds and we are in turn, influenced by the art we create and consume.
We are in times that are unearthing long buried experiences of pain, abuse, violation and cruelty. Good intentions mingled with fear, ignorance and resentment lead us all into blind alleys. How do we talk about things that are hard and navigate the world around us at the same time?
Presenting The SXonomics show - a 1 hour audience-immersive session with games, performance and thought-starters. Join us in this experience of taking ownership.
SXonomics is a collaboration between Dr.Ishmeet Nagpal and Ramya Pandan (Idea Smith). SXonomics is committed to furthering love-positive, sex-positive, intersectional feminism through entertainment and conversations.
