TOXINOSEXOFUTURECUMMINGS is a “bodyfiction about pleasurable sex on a polluted planet. It’s a speech performance of a body making itself with words.
“In the performance, sex is seen as an evolutionary and developmental process. It opens up a world in which materials and multispecies bodies infiltrate each other, giving and receiving pleasure. The world is thoroughly polluted, but possible, queer and trans.
“TOXINOSEXOFUTURECUMMINGS is a performance about an anticipatory and transformational state.”*
Helsinki-based performance and visual artist Ana Teo Ala-Ruona—in residency in Los Angeles over the past month—presents TOXINOSEXOFUTURECUMMINGS, in collaboration with trans-futurist sound designer and synthesist Scallion Chloe.
Saturday, July 27, at 8 pm.
410 Cottage Home Street, downtown Los Angeles.
