Good Sex

by Dead Centre with Emilie Pine

How do you have sex on stage? How do you even have sex?

After two years when touching was a transgressive act, and our bodies were sites of sickness, we need to relearn how to be intimate. Created by Dead Centre and award-winning novelist and essayist Emilie Pine, Good Sex is a love story for a loveless age.

Each night, two brand new performers will tell this story of desire, betrayal and loneliness. They have never rehearsed together or read the script. They are strangers. But they are
not alone — to help and guide them they’ll be joined on stage by an intimacy director, trained in the art of teaching people how to touch. You can rest assured that the sex will be safe. It will be consensual. And it will be good.

For Ages 16+

Contains adult themes and strong language.

Funded by the Arts Council | An Chomhairle Ealaíon. Development supported by Pavilion Theatre.
