Sex Status 2.0
More Feminism, Less Bullshit
A Public Performance Experience Inside 3 Private Homes
Oct 24-Nov 10, 2018
Wed-Sun at 8pm
$25-$100 (sliding scale)
Sex Status 2.0 takes Simone de Beauvoir's 1949 feminist masterpiece "The Second Sex" as a jumping off point for a different take on dance performance; exploring our conditioning as women and what still needs to be uncovered, or shifted. What is authentic femininity? Where does our power lie? What are our deepest desires?
Created by choreographer Carrie Ahern in collaboration with performers Carolyn Hall, Kelly Hayes, Donna Costello, Elke Rindfleisch, Anne Parichon, Jennifer Chin; composer Starr Busby, lighting designer Jay Ryan, and costume consultant Naoko Nagata.
This diverse group of female performers partners with door jambs, end tables, window sills and the audience in dutiful, wild, uncomfortable, funny and surprising explorations through the 'Female Gaze', 'Touch Preferences/Consent' and an 'Audience Sex/Cleaning Survey'.
*Each week will be performed in a different location in Brooklyn or Manhattan
Sex Status 2.0 is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
