Sex Worker's Opera

About

Experimental Experience presents
Sex Worker's Opera

UK Tour Nov 2017

What do you think of when you hear the words
‘Stripper’, ‘Escort’, ‘Pornstar’?

A street worker giving marital advice...
A webcam model and her ventriloquist dummy…
A daughter making career choices in a male-dominated world…

Whether you want to save us, judge us, lust for us or empathise, come down for a night of opera to hip-hopera, contemporary dance to pole dance, where Sex Workers take back the stage to tell our own stories in our own words.

Created and performed by Sex Workers and friends, Sex Worker’s Opera offers an unflinchingly honest, upliftingly human insight into the lives of Sex Workers locally and around the world.
