DetailsA participatory performance that approaches sexuality through power and role play. The performance offers an opportunity to carry out fantasies with a 'sleeping' person. The participant can choose to be either the sleeper or the visitor, and bring accessories or props to their liking. The performers will be present at the festival bar where audience members can converse with them about their fantasies and the possibility of making them happen. When mutual understanding is met, the participant can purchase a ticket for the show and move into an intimate, calm space for the encounter. Sleeping Beauty gives room to personal fantasies, sensations and feelings, and communication through touch. It invites the participant to step into the reality of the performance where power and surrender, trust and consent, curiosity and timidity, desires and fears, being seen and experiencing human beauty meet. The performance is queer-oriented and it welcomes all kinds of bodies, genders and sexual orientations.
