“Two hours disappear quickly in BUNNY, a bondage-performance event in which desire hums beneath explorations of trust, consent, collective responsibility, spectatorship, sexuality and power… BUNNY is a momentary explosion of questions. It is a temporary community. I leave abuzz with an emergent sense of my own place in those questions; with a new sense of my own desire.” – Cleo Mess / Real Time (Sydney)
Please note: The artists wish to create an intimate, cozy, comfy play-space for the audience, in which different viewing perspectives will enhance the audience experience. Accordingly, seating options will include chairs, stools and cushions.
This performance contains nudity.
