I Consent

This performance focuses 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. The piercee also read the declaration of court decisions limiting the legal ability to consent to “harm.”
