SEX WERQUE Returns for Additional Four Performances
After a successful first run in July 2017 Sex Werque returns for four performances only. In Sex Werque, an autobiographical movement theater piece about working as a former stripper in Pittsburgh, performer/choreographer Moriah Ella Mason explores attitudes and misconceptions about the industry, and how we perform eroticism and consume intimacy, both in the club and at home. Through theater and dance, she unpacks the world of sex work: the emotional and economic forces, the movement vocabulary, the masks, and the moments of authentic connection. A powerful work, at times funny, at times unsettling, providing a unique insider perspective.
From the play: "If you want to be a stripper, you don't need a resume, which is good...and you don't need a cover letter, which is even better..."
Mason is joined by collaborating sound artists J.F. Winkles, Eric Weidenhof, video artist Liz Barentine, and the voices and expertise of other sex workers.
Conceived by and starring Moriah Ella Mason.
Produced by The Off The Wall Charitable Trust
