25 OCTOBER – 1 DECEMBER
[Carriageworks 245 Wilson St, Eveleigh 2015]
SEXES is Performance Space’s festival of visual and performing arts exploring sexuality and gendered identities in contemporary Australia. Always progressive and sometimes confronting, it will invigorate current debates, lay our desires bare and turn you on.
Opening up multiple perspectives for thinking about sex and sexuality, this new festival features an extensive visual arts exhibition with 17 artists, two new full-length performance works, live art, dirty movies, erotic readings, a danceathon and many more stimulating events. As a whole, we hope that SEXES will test boundaries, challenge assumptions, and invite you to consider yourself – and others – in a new, sexier light.

PERFORMANCE: WHELPING BOX
23 OCT – 3 NOV Two performers chain themselves to stakes, to test their limits and strip themselves of civility. An absurd spectacle, carried off with absolute conviction.
