Foreign Body

Mon 10 to Sun 16 Oct

Foreign Body

Candice grew up in the ‘80s in Apartheid South Africa, but despite her white privilege, inherited racial prejudices and good girl tendencies, she unexpectedly found herself breaking all the rules (and mum and dad’s hearts) when she shacked up across the forbidden colour lines and gave birth to her mixed-race daughter at the age of 21. Having grown up a fair bit, faced her prejudices and now moved to Australia, she’s ready to open up and tell her incredible life story and the lessons she’s learned along the way.

Foreign Body is an hour of hilarious and heartfelt stories, songs and South African slang, where Candice will grapple with her labels and reckon with the past in order to redefine herself as a foreigner in Australia on her own terms.
