Sex Workers' Art Show
Sex Workers' Art Show Tour is coming to your town!
Straight up – this is one of the most excellent, funny, brilliant,
entertaining shows I’ve ever been to it. I go every year – never miss
show is an eye-popping evening of visual and performance art created by
people who work in the sex industry to dispel the myth that they are
anything short of artists, innovators, and geniuses!
The wildly successful cabaret-style show is hitting the road again,
bringing audiences a blend of spoken word, music, drag, burlesque, and
multimedia performance art. Intelligent and hot, disturbing and
hilarious, the performances offer a wide range of perspectives on sex
work, from celebration of prostitutes' rights and sex-positivity to
views from the darker sides of the industry.
This year's incredible lineup of performers includes international
burlesque sensation Miss Dirty Martini; award-winning author of
the coming-out novel How I Learned to Snap Kirk Read;
acclaimed Whitney Biennial artist Julie Atlas Muz; feminist smut
purveyor and queer film star Amber Dawn; author of Happy Baby
and My Girlfriend Comes to the City and Beats Me Up Stephen
Elliott; stripper historian and burlesque professor Jo Weldon;
member of the internationally renowned Japanese performance collective
Dumb Type, Cono Snatch Zubobinskaya; enigmatic operatic musician
Reginald Lamar; filmmaker and performer Bridget Irish;
and tour founder and ringmaster Annie Oakley.
The show includes people from all areas of the sex industry: strippers,
prostitutes, dommes, film stars, phone sex operators, internet models,
etc. It smashes traditional stereotypes and moves beyond "positive" and
"negative" into a fuller articulation of the complicated ways sex
workers experience their jobs and their lives. The Sex Workers' Art
Show entertains, arouses, and amazes while simultaneously
offering scathing and insightful commentary on notions of class,
race, gender, labor and sexuality! Tour schedule below.
