IN PERSON
The Butterfly Club presents

Candice D'Arcy Foreign Body (AUS,STH AFRICA)

White. Immigrant. Mum. Good girl. After years of trying to blend in as a foreigner in Australia, Candice is finally ready to stand out. 

Candice grew up in the ‘80s in Apartheid South Africa, but despite her white privilege and good girl tendencies, she found herself breaking all the rules when she dated across the colour lines and became a mum at the age of 21. Fast forward 20 years (seven of them in Melbourne and people are still asking her where she’s from) and she’s started to wonder: is it possible to shake off the labels and perceptions that have defined our entire lives?

Dusting off her memories, Mandela shirt and original accent, she’ll grapple with her labels and reckon with the past using stories, songs and South African slang.
