How can performance prevent rape?

On-stage performance can help us reimagine what we take for granted. This blog looks at how performance can explore different ways to be a woman or a man, and negotiate relationships that are flexible, fun, and freeing.

I suggest that performance can be used as a tool in rape prevention. I look at how performative methods of rape prevention may build upon and develop other forms of social education that work to end rape, creating possibilites for different ways to engage in intimate relationships.

This blog is a personal, theoretical, and performative exploration of how performance can be used in rape prevention.

Perform in bed

Lots of people perform in bed, not just me! Perhaps you do too?

John and Yoko started something.......

What intimacies can we allow in bed, that the footpath, the boardroom, the office, the dinner table doesn't allow?

Have you seen Annie Spinkle, and her partner Elizabeth Stevens perform in a big bed? They invite people into their bed for a sandwich cuddle.

What are your happiest, saddest, most unusual bed moments? (I'm having a bed-moment now, it's raining, well, it was).
