Louise Orwin: Oh Yes Oh No

Louise Orwin: Oh Yes Oh No

6th November 2019


Trigger Warning: This show features graphic content and descriptions of sexual violence. Suitable for ages 16+

This is a show about having sexual fantasies that don’t align with your politics. It’s about understanding what you want, and wondering how the hell to ask for it.

Award-winning performance artist Louise Orwin asks the difficult questions as she takes you on a surreal joyride through femme sexuality and violence. Made exclusively with the candid input of those willing to talk openly and honestly about their sex lives, this one-woman show interrogates identity, consent and power play.

Featuring explicit XXX, Barbie’n’Ken role-play, a heady mix of pop culture references, and sound design by Alicia Jane Turner (THIS IS HOW WE DIE composer), the show explores sexuality and who gets to have a say in it. This show is for anyone who has ever struggled to find their sexual voice, or questioned the sexual culture they were brought up in. Oh Yes Oh No dares to speak about a subject which is rarely addressed publicly, especially in the wake of #MeToo.

Steady yourself to rethink desire, and then watch her smash it all to pieces.

Part of the 2019 British Council Showcase.
