The Inner Circle LIVE at F*ckfest
Jun 23, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Like a little sex with your opera? We do. Curious to learn more about your own sexual proclivities? We are. Opera on Tap presents an immersive evening of sex education opera-style. Coursework includes scenes from The Inner Circle, a sexually blunt new opera about the charismatic visionary Dr. Alfred Kinsey, by the “fascinating and engaging” (Washington Post) composer Daniel Felsenfeld. The event kicks off with burlesque emcee Nasty Canasta and friends reading your sexual survey responses and some naked readings from TC Boyle’s book The Inner Circle. Eye candy and condoms provided free of charge with class enrollment. Hailed as “raucous and sublime”, Opera on Tap has been bringing opera to the un-initiated in bars and other alternative spaces since 2005.
WHAT IS F*CKFEST YOU ASK?
Are you frustrated? Repressed? Horny? Or do you just regard sexuality as a glorious window into humanity? For those of you for whom these questions haunt you daily, The Brick is pleased to announce the first ever F*ckfest, taking place during June 2015 in Brooklyn, New York! F*ckfest, quite simply, is a festival about sex. A sextival, if you will. Our inaugural roster is chock-full of artists of all stripes with unique, playful, and subversive approaches to sexuality. As noted scholar and professor of sexology Dr. Marvin P. Gay, Jr. put it, “Let’s get it ahwnnn.”
