Midnight Masala is an Indian colloquial phrase for soft porn screened in late night movie theatres in India. It is also the name of the spice stall run by Shahmen Suku’s alter ego, Radha La Bia. Radha will inhabit Midnight Masala with a series of durational performances, creating a holistic experience that encompasses culinary science and spatial dynamics.
Little India in Singapore is a product of global trade, where boundaries between castes and classes of migrant Indians become indistinct in the way that both spices and sex are traded. Radha’s adventures of the palate recount the limits of inter-racial, bi cultural sexual escapades, addressing questions of race, gender, migration, sexuality, community and family through the lens of food.
Join us for this special Frieze performance of Midnight Masala at The Empire Remains Shop.
This evening is hosted by Nicoletta Fiorucci.
