Two Hungry Children: Kalale Dalton and Cason Sharpe in collaboration with Madelyne Beckles

July 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Inspired by Suzanne Barr’s story telling though food and her evocation of ‘memory’ Two hungry children will moderate an intergenerational discussion of all contributors of the residency for a two-part podcast feature. By highlighting key voices and their thoughts on diaspora migration and the artistic process, they will sit around the dinner table intending to mirror the colloquial discussions that were formative in Black Queer and Feminist communities as well as in their own blood and chosen families.

About Two Hungry Children:

Created by and featuring the voices of Montreal/Toronto based artists Kalale Dalton-Lutale and Cason Sharpe, Two Hungry Children is an experimental podcast following two friends as they explore issues of identity, Blackness, friendship, love, pop culture and the mundanities of everyday life. Two Hungry Children gives audiences an intimate look into the lives, thoughts and voices of young Black people in the Canadian context. Find Two Hungry Children on iTunes, Soundcloud and Tumblr.

Why Two Hungry Children

  • Kalale, Cason and Madelyne are young mixed race artists working in the genres of podcast conversation and performance who in their words “are as hungry as fuck” so we invited them in to eat and talk.
