Presented by Rebecca Atkinson-Lord and Greg Wohead
Rebecca and Greg both like sex. They like doing it. They like thinking about it. They like watching it. Sometimes, it’s the only thing they talk about. And now they’re making a show. A sex show.
In this work–in–development, they’ll pass their own experiences, fantasies, mistakes and hopes about sex and love back and forth in a sloppy mess, groping for a connection. They don’t know quite what it will be yet, but they do know that it will be dripping in bodily fluids and light on shame. They hope it will be like a wildly misinterpreted sext, that porn scene you can’t believe gets you off or the dirty talk that takes an unexpected turn.
“Even identical genital acts mean very different things to different people. This is a crucial point to remember, and also a difficult one. It reminds us that there is difference right where we may be looking for, and expecting, communion.” Maggie Nelson, The Argonauts
“To jerk or not to jerk that is the question” Duncan Black, porn performer (via Twitter)
Snowballing has been commissioned by CPT for Hotbed.
