Sexscape at Wits TheatreWSOA - Wits School of Arts
Sexcape is a compelling and provocative new multimedia physical theatre work created by multi award-winning choreographer PJ Sabbagha.
It was done in collaboration with performers from the Wits School of Arts.
Specially created for the Drama For Life Festival "Sex Actually", this exciting new HIV and Aids focused creation explores the emotional, physical and psychological landscape of sex. Blurring the boundaries between public and private spaces Sexcape navigates a precarious journey through the aftermath and residues of our sexual relationships.
Sexscape runs from 24 to 28 August 2010 at 19:30 in the Wits Downstairs Theatre with the exception of 26 August which is a matinee performance at 13:15. Tickets are R10 and available at the door. The production carries an age restriction of 16 for strong language and parental guidance is advised.
