YOUR SEXTS ARE SHIT: OLDER BETTER LETTERS by Rachel Mars
Summerhall, 13-25 August
Before tech, there were hand-written letters. And loads of them were proper filthy.
Total Theatre Award winning Rachel Mars returns after her gleeful sell-out hit Our Carnal Hearts – this time she’s unearthing the hot-as-hell letters from history that make sexts blush.
Come! Take pleasure in James Joyce’s passion for arse, find out who sneaked her gay lover into the White House and bear witness to the best/worst sexts ever sent. This gloriously intimate, very funny and surprisingly moving new show is an erotic archive shot through with Rachel’s personal ventures in contemporary Queer kink.
Summerhall. Nightclubbing: 31 July - 11 August // Out: 13-25 August
“We’re shape-shifting in a bid to fit in; to be black enough, straight enough, Jamaican enough…”
Defiantly challenging homophobia and transphobia, OUT is a duet – a conversation between two bodies, carving out a new kind of space, reclaiming Dancehall and celebrating Vogue culture amongst the bittersweet scent of oranges.
1981: Grace Jones releases her landmark album ‘Nightclubbing’; her body is brown and soft. 2015: Three women are refused entry into a London nightclub; their bodies are brown and soft.
Rachael Young and her badass band of super-humans embrace Afrofuturism and the cult of Grace Jones in NIGHTCLUBBING; an explosive new performance bringing visceral live music and intergalactic visions to start a revolution.
