As part of the research and process for my new show OH YES OH NO, I'll be running a series of workshops around the subject matter. If you'd like to be involved, read on...

I don’t know the question, but sex is definitely the answer.’ Joan Rivers


Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about what turns me on, and the politics of desire: how it is performed, and how we can understand it in our current political climate. I want to know if I can own my turn-ons in an empowered way, and begin to untangle it from the narrative of heteronormative desire that patriarchal culture weaves for us.

This is a workshop for those who want to get to know more about their own desire, in a safe space. I’m inviting you on a journey of sexual exploration with me: two days of no-hold-barred questioning, sharing, and discussing of all things S-E-X. The workshops will be approached the way I approach my own work, with a mixture of exercises to include: meditative exercises, writing, reading, and a lot of discussion. There will also be opportunities to be part of my new show OH YES OH NO (for those who wish), which I’m currently making and revolves around this research area.


 This workshop is for the brave of heart, curious of mind, and tingly of nether regions. To apply please respond to the following questions: What turns you on? What draws you to this workshop, and what would you like to get out of it? Please also send a short paragraph about yourself and your interests. Applications should be no longer than 800 words.
