FROM 17th May 2016 – 29th May 2016, SEX WORKERS’ OPERA WILL BE RUNNING AT THE PLEASANCE THEATRE.
ARCHIVE: Part of the 2015 Creative Engagement Winter Season
Breaking through stigma and stereotypes, Sex Workers’ Opera is a unique multimedia production written and performed by sex workers and their allies.
With music spanning opera to ‘hip-hopera’, and incorporating sound art, projections and poetry, it offers an unflinchingly honest, upliftingly human insight into the lives of sex workers around the world.
“You say that sex is all you see, well I think you see me in 2D
because the actual reality is a mosaic blur – a tapestry.”
“What every great opera should do” – Royal Opera House
“A clashing of worlds… intense and emotional” – The Independent
Monday – Thursday evenings at 8pm
£15 / £10 concessions
Running time: 2 hours, 30 minutes approximately (including interval)
