**WARNING: This performance contains extensive nudity and mature themes.**

How do we use pleasure's joyful potential to disrupt clichéd images attached to nudity and sexuality? Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer who explores this question.

At the heart of her new work, 7 Pleasures, twelve performers confront notions of nudity, body politics and sexual practice, questioning the borders between private and public space by literally placing the naked body in the middle of the theater public. In this American premiere, pleasure becomes a perceptual as much as a political question.

“7 Pleasures confirms that in this culture, there’s hardly any state more complicated than being naked with others.” –The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

IMPORTANT NOTES:

1) If you are uncomfortable with full frontal nudity in a live performance, this show may not be for you. Join us next time when performers are fully clothed. :-)

2) We will go out for drinks and snacks after the show. I will disclose the location ONLY to those members who show up for the performance.

3) As always, NO-SHOWS are NO FUN (rude)! Don't RSVP here if you do not intend to buy tickets. I know who you are, you know who you are, and I will remember next time.
