Eat Me Baladi: An evening of two artistic explorations that investigate the intersections between sexuality, sensuality, and Palestinian identity through the body, movement/dance and food. Leila Delicious & Mette Loulou von Kohl will share their works in conversation to probe the spaces of dissonance and familiarity between their individual experiences in relating to their bodies as Palestinians.
Leila Delicious (she/her) is a Palestinian burlesque artist and professional snacker, who exists at the epicenter of queer Palestinian decadence and hungry bench vibes. Her work invites breathlessness, hunger, and a dive into Palestinian history and futurism. She hopes you’ll join her as we’re collectively transported to a gay, free Palestine adorned with gold and fresh fruit.
Mette Loulou von Kohl was born from the orange at the center before the new world came. She is a performer, cultural worker, educator and wanderer. Mette Loulou is a queer femme, of Lebanese/Palestinian and Danish ancestry. Mette Loulou is fascinated by the intersection between her personal identities as a jumping off point to reveal, dismantle and rebuild realities and dreams. As an educator and cultural worker Mette Loulou is committed to breaking cycles of violence through creating spaces of self-exploration and healing, and uses her art as a tool in the fight to end the colonization of Palestine. She exists in two places at once.
