Urgent, engaging and innovative performance work and art from Theatre & Social Change. Six brand new works ask critical questions for the world today with humour, with compassion, with quiet contemplation, with sonic overwhelm, with curiosity, and with dedication.


Stop Looking at my Cake

‘Stop Looking at my Cake’ is a multimedia art installation of Oz’s artistic journey towards healing, growing, and learning to love oneself as a fat person in a world that doesn’t want us to be fat, through rediscovering a long lost love of baking.

Through many mediums such as photography, sculpture and collage, Oz explores themes including; love after abuse, desirability politics, childhood shame, eating disorders and the importance of having some damn good cake.
