Presented by Lauren Aimee Burch
The Conversation is a piece of autobiographical performance art which explores the topic of consent. Lauren challenges the audience’s preconceptions of the language of consent and how we talk about it, or, how we do not talk about it. Don’t worry, she’s not looking to shock you and she’s definitely not angry at you. She just wants to impress you.
Lauren attempts to create a safe space where you can feel relaxed and invited to enjoy yourself with the help of her hosting. All of this is for you, and she won’t let you forget it. She’s pulling out all the stops on this special night. Although, while striving to set herself high expectations, she may fail to meet them. You may feel the urge to leave, and you are welcome to, whenever you want. But oh baby, please don’t go, she just wants you to stay.

Feedback and Reviews
“Through her playful, colourful and knotty performance, Lauren looks after us as an audience; we are allowed to feel whatever we need to, or want to feel, and Lauren guides us gently through this all, deftly.” Barrel Organ Theatre
” The Conversation is important. It’s a chat that needs to be had, but no on has had it because of the taboo. Lauren Aimee Burch breaks that taboo.” Big Loop Theatre Company
