I Consent

This performance focused on the tension between BDSM, erotica, sex and the legal constraints on its practice. This short theater piece enacted the explicit granting of permission for the piercings, and juxtaposed the contract (through documents signed in ink and blood) between piercer and piercee. A declaration of court decisions limiting the legal ability to consent to “harm” was read.
