Mish Grigor

The Talk

Thu 18 – Sat 20 August, 4pm
Reserve Seats

My brother came out after an episode of ‘The L Word’.
As the credits closed on Carmen going down on a leggy blonde in a nightclub, he said, “I’m like that. I do that.”
My mother and I looked at each other, confused.
“Cunnilingis?” I offered, and laughed.
“No!” He said, standing up and rolling up his blanket. “Gay. I do gay. I’m gay. I do gay sex.”

‘The Talk’ is about talking about sex with your family. Mum, dad, brother’s new boyfriend… all of them.

Mish Grigor, motivated by a monumental event, shares her conversations – complete with awkwardness, nervous giggles, and some outright baffling moments.

There are some monumental performance moments in The Talk—moments where Grigor does much more than press buttons and mess with our heads (which she does so well)” Urszula Dawkins, REAL TIME

Mish Grigor is an artist who lives in Sydney. Her work investigates the relationships between popular entertainment and experimental art practices. She enjoys moments of great theatricality placed very close to the absolutely mundane, and has an ongoing fascination with new writing for performance.

She is one third of the collaboration POST, formed in 2003, with Zoe Coombs Marr and Natalie Rose.
