Calling all freedom fighters for the sexual revolution,

all rebels of the erotic resistance!

Sex We Can! An Erotic Uprising is a movement, a crusade, a philosophy, and a live performance.

Premiering as part of the Fertile Ground Festival in 2018 at the historic Clinton St. Theater in Portland, Oregon, Sex We Can! will feature sex-positive artists from multiple mediums, diverse backgrounds and sexual orientations, creating art about sex.  Specifically, sexual expression as a tool of the resistance and sex as medicine.

 

Sex We Can! encourages creating your own erotic utopia (be the change you want to see!) and sharing that vision with the world.  Sex We Can! seeks to crush shame and create community.  We are here to to remind you that pleasure is your birthright.  The sexual revolution is far from over.  We are called to protect the progress we have made and conjure the world we want to create.  We will overcome!

 

…and keep on coming ; )

 

That’s where you come in.

 

Sex We Can! is a co-created production.  The performances are developed by creatives of all kinds (some of whom have never been on stage before, but have a story to tell or a poem to share, or a song that must be sung) and woven into a powerful, electric evening of entertainment.

 

Participants work with Dance Naked Productions artistic director, Eleanor O’Brien, to develop a piece, and rehearse as an ensemble to create a coherent performance.

 

FAQ

 

What do I need to do for the audition?

 

Auditions will consist of sharing your potential performance piece.  Ideas in their raw form are acceptable (but the more you can do to develop your idea improves the odds that your creation will be included).  You will audition with other people.  Part of being in this show is being part of an ensemble, and being willing to be vulnerable.  Put on your big girl panties and show up!  You will have 5 minutes to share what you’ve got.

 

Audition times:

Saturday, November 4th, 11 am – 1 pm
Saturday, November 4th, 2 pm – 4 pm
