Fat, Feminist and Free
This stand up performance is based on Pramada’s encounters with many different people and some crazy situations. Some were funny and seemed impossible and yet they happened and some were not so funny. This performance strings together issues of identity, sexuality, body image and takes a tongue in cheek look at the world we all inhabit.
Pramada Menon is an independent consultant working on issues of gender, sexuality, sexual rights, women’s human rights and issues of leadership and organizational development. She is the co-founder of CREA (www.creaworld.org), an organization working on issues of women’s human rights and was the Director Programs at CREA until March 2008.
She has spent the last two decades of her professional life questioning, challenging and seeking answers on issues of women’s human rights. Her primary interest lies in working with people and she has facilitated learning processes with a number of people on a range of issues related to gender, sexuality and leadership. Pramada would like to develop new ways of learning and teaching and is currently exploring ways in which humor can be injected into the world of social change.She is currently Artist in Residence at the Centre for Media and Cultural Studies, TISS.
