Presented by THEOFFCENTER in collaboration with Center for Sex and Culture’s Carol Queen and Robert Lawrence and under rigorous curatorial direction by Los Angeles based London scholar and practicing performance maker Doran George, Slow Sex includes two facilitated discussions about desire.

This is What YOU Want is a piece that provides us with a framework to explore these and other questions around an economy of desire.
As the culmination of TIWIW2012, Center or Sex and Culture hosts a participatory exploration conceived by Tessa Wills and Directed by TT Baum, developed with assistance from artists and Bay Area luminaries: Kirk Read, Cayenne, Pele, Syd Blaekovitch, Sadie Lune, Praney, Christraper, Brontez, Ariadne, Syd Nova, Elizabeth McSturdy, SiouxsieQ, Ian Waisler, Minax, Annie Danger, Captain Snowden, and Carol Queen.
Tickets are $15 – $25 (asked for you “appointment time”) this exploration is an hour long, and it will be presented in three stages. You can say a desire to the charger of your choosing, rememeber that if you ask, maybe you will get what you desire… or not. And maybe it will answer some of the questions above. Or not. Make it risky, make it profound. Or not!
Get your ticket at EventBrite - We are expecting it to be many things, especially; fun.
For a five hour performance exploration in unchartered territory between sensual practices and art practices, between performance and happening, embodying the theme of “This Is What I Want 2012″, and making the site of that research of the economy of desire culminate in your personal experience.
June 30th at the CSC 5pm till 11pm. Only 100 tickets for this event.
