Sex vs. Love
November 22, 2019 | 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Have you ever had 12 dating apps running at once and felt like you were your own underpaid secretary balancing the messages from all of these strangers? Have you ever felt THAT and told your friends that you were sick of being lonely? Perhaps we don’t know how to handle sex anymore. Is it love we’re lacking? Are we not mature? These words and movements in the play remind us of the messy burst of energy that is sex. Have we fooled ourselves into associating the pain of the intercourse with the pleasure of our partner? And, how the hell do we cope with all this, and be people of color? Are YOU a person of color? If not, did you know that they exist? This is a daringly investigative piece of sexual intimacy in a digital age and in a psychological era where beauty is subconsciously mastered with white urban excellence. The type of play that should encourage you to buy a drink at the bar and meet someone new. Half interactive. Half radioactive.
