COUNTERPULSE THEATER, SAN FRANCISCO.

THREE ARTISTS. three performances. ONE THEME. DESIRE.

Special Note: MAY 29TH: NUDE NIGHT: Following TIWIW 2014’s wildly popular Nude Night, TIWIW 2015 will present an intimate, clothing-optional night of performances on Friday, May 29th. Audience members who chose to participate will be taxed per item of clothing (excluding socks and shoes) as an invitation to share in the state of vulnerability with performers, exploring a shared intimacy. Think extreme coat-check.

CRISTINA VICTOR

Cristina Victor’s Ass Capital: Reflections of a Contemporary Culo will be an auto-ethonographic, TED talk style lecture lead by the Victor’s ASS. Victor’s ASS will discuss coming of age in a predominately Latino/Hispanic Booty obsessed community, touch on the emergence of the current “Golden Booty Era” and lead into its meditations and concerns for the future of the culo in contemporary life and entertainment media. Topics will be supplemented by images, music, allegory and inevitable yet mild gyration.

GIGI OTÁLVARO-HORMILLOSA

Performing vignettes based on her critical sex writing and erotica, Otálvaro-Hormillosa inspires sensual thinking and dialogue around gender, race, and sex. In her new work Psychic Gold, she stages images of desire and converses with historical and contemporary figures like Freud, Sor Juana, and men of different backgrounds to reflect on female “masculinities.” 

 

Jason Wyman

Part installation, part performance, all interactive, Jason Wyman’s Confessing Desire invites the audience to become the subject of poetry by confessing their desires to The Mystic. The Mystic bares witness to each person who steps behind the paper screen and using a blank page and a pen, transforms their confessions into poetry. Meanwhile, The Prophet sets the stage, reveals poetry, and engages the Storytellers in creating sonic landscapes of echoed desires. Confessing Desire is performed by Jason Wyman (The Mystic) and Shirley Acuna (The Prophet).
