FOREGROUND brings conversations and storytelling to the foreground at MPavilion—spoken and performed by those whose voices are usually in the background. Exploring themes of identity, oppression and intersectionality through a gender-sensitive lens, this event aims to create an experience that inspires inclusive social interaction and uses the poetics of space to connect people through shared experience.

Mapping the intersection between spoken-word poetry, performance and discussion, seven artists will interpret the seven stages of grief in the form of a spoken-word poem, each an abstract and poetic representation of each stage of grief. After the performance will be a mediated and interactive panel discussion between the artists and you, the audience, unpacking each theme.
