The History of Sexuality

Talking Dog Productions

Company website

Sexuality is always wrapped up in structures and systems of power. This new verbatim theatre play by Dane Stewart offers an intimate and radically honest examination of sex and power from a queer perspective. Five students take a graduate seminar studying the work of revolutionary philosopher Michel Foucault. As they argue over issues of sexuality, gender, oppression and free will, these theories begin to rupture and spill out into their own lives. The characters expose the complexities of sexuality as it collides with BDSM, pup play, disability, gender, race, and sex work.

Alissa and Madeleine have their relationship tested under the weight of anxiety and depression. Talia and Darr live the positives and negatives of sex work as their experiences build self-confidence and breed violence. The polyamorous Dom/sub partnership between Craig and Martin exposes the challenges of BDSM power-relationships. And, tying everything together is Professor Marie Dupont, whose omnipotent lectures on truth and power begin to rupture the lives of her students.

Coming Soon

A worthy but impecunious young man has met the girl of his dreams. There's just one hitch - she's a courtesan, and she's about to be sold to a rich soldier from abroad. Can a wily, witty, fast-taking servant find a way to bring this farce to a happy ending? The 2,000-year-old Roman comedy gets a 1930s makeover in this new translation by Celia Taylor and Manuela Galindo. Recommended for ages 12+.

Le Cabaret Bouge d'Ici met en scène de l'art créé par les organisateurs, mentors, collaborateurs et amis du festival, le tout dans une ambiance décontractée. Performances à 20 h, party gratuit dès 22h30.
