Sexicide, a penetrating look at intimacy in the digital age. What is desire? How do we manage our need for intimacy? An orgasm is described as a mini death, but can it actually kill you? This performance will highlight the sexual experiences of a queer black man in Portland. Sex is deadly but death is also a transformation.
CONTENT WARNING: graphic gay sex, suicide, and strobe lighting.
