A cheeky peek beneath Kiwi sheets
Sex –What does it say about us? Anyone who has been exposed to Japanese pornography or rubbed up against a German fetish website will know how telling their sexual practices are and how much they reveal about the hidden psyche of those two nations.
The French are romantic and passionate; Italians, wild and reckless; the British are reserved and unadventurous – but what about New Zealanders? What do Kiwis do with our pants down and what does it say about us as a nation?
The Outfit Theatre Company presents a cheeky peek under the sheets into the sexual appetites and attitudes of Aotearoa.
A huge ensemble cast brings to life a variety of colourful, comedic and climactic characters who reveal their sexual experiences, relationships, politics, fantasies and fears from every possible ‘position'.
Infamous for their large casts, topical performances and explosive style, The Outfit Theatre Company are touted by many as ‘the ones to watch' in the Auckland theatre scene. The Sex Show, the newest work by the prolific professional theatre troupe, is their sixth original New Zealand play since the Company's inception in 2007.
Programmed as part of the Auckland Fringe Festival, The Sex Show is sure to leave its mark among the weird and wonderful offerings that the festival will present. The play draws on the real life sexual experiences of its mammoth cast as well as polling online forums and social media sites where members of the public are also encouraged to share their own experiences.
The Sex Show is honest, funny, touching and thoroughly…Stimulating.
What's your fetish?
