Image of production Labia


Three performers bring the sensuality, poetics and politics of kissing on stage.

In labia tender queers reshape and play with the multiple forms and images of gender and
free romantic love. Different forms and intentions of kissing crystallize into small dances,
scenes and choreographies. The performers fluctuate between experiencing and performing
the intimate. Lips are touching other lips – thirsting, greeting, for farewell, giving, taking,
sensing, asking, aching and longing.

hubba bubba, guts
wet lips, singing hips
bye shy bye

Demo versions of labia have been performed at the Museum Of Impossible Forms in an
evening organised by Bodies of Pleasures collective and at Urban Apa's Club Ambedo.
