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 30-40 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. This performance was one act, on two nights.
