#allin #sexeducation #thefutureisqueer


A time-travel ride through evolution of sexes, celebrating our diverse gender identities and sexualities. Packed with humour and DIY tech, ›Sex Education Xplorers (S.E.X.)‹ is a playful new take on sex education from the award-winning artist Mamoru Iriguchi, whose work has been described as ›gloriously original‹ (Socialist Worker), ›nothing short of genius‹ (Sunday Herald) and ›Daringly inventive‹ (The Stage). An eye-opening experience for teenagers, and everyone who missed the sex education they deserved at school!

Mamoru Iriguchi is a performance maker and theatre designer with a background in zoology. He is based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The performance works are rooted in his knowledge and experience in designing set, costume and projection as well as his interests in 2D and 3D, liveness and pre-recorded-ness, gender and sexuality, fairytales and evolution theories. All his full-length pieces toured in the UK and internationally to countries including Germany, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland and the USA. His theatre design work includes Mincemeat (Cardboard Citizens, Best Design, Evening Standard Theatre Awards)and The Pink Bits (Mapping4D, Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Award).

The performance takes place as ›Relaxed Performance‹. They are meant to create a more relaxed atmosphere in the theater hall and reduce barriers emerging through theater conventions. Bean bags are available as alternative seating and can be reserved by telephone based on their availability. The film runs approx. 50 minutes without intermission, but the audience can leave and reenter the auditorium at any time during the event—nobody has to ›sit still‹ for the entire duration. Vocal utterances are also no disturbances at relaxed performances. The performance is in english spoken language with german surtlitles. A German translation via headphones will be offered at Sunday's performance. The lighting situation in the audience is dimmed throughout the performance, but not dark. The audience is seated. There are two wheelchair spaces that can be reserved based on availability or selected as a ticket category in the online store and at the box office. Upon request, it is possible to enter the hall early (›early boarding‹) – please contact our evening staff if you would like to make use of this option.
