Let’s talk about sex

‘All The Sex I’ve Ever Had’ sees a group of local over-65s draw on all their wisdom and experience to share true stories of their romantic and sex lives.

In this taboo-busting tell-all, the spotlight is, at last, shone on a part of the population too often rendered invisible, with a show that has touched and tickled audiences all the way from Portland to Prague, Scotland to Singapore.

‘All The Sex I’ve Ever Had’ will be performed at HOTA in early October and the team behind the show, internationally renowned Canadian performance company Mammalian Driving Reflex, are just about to conclude their auditions for cast members.

The show is a tender encounter with real people who are happy to open-up about their lives, sexual experiences and the unexpected twists and turns of their relationships. They will divulge stories like first crushes, turbulent affairs, unexpected pregnancies and deaths of loved ones.

The show will see the performers chatting with the audience, toasting to important milestones and some may even break out into a dance on-stage.

‘All the Sex I’ve Ever Had’ is an opportunity to acknowledge that our elders have a lot to teach us, a lot to share, and that ageing can yield a way of being in the world that is open, generous and fearless.

HOTA CEO Criena Gehrke said she is delighted to welcome Mammalian Diving Reflex as they take up residency at HOTA, Home of the Arts in September.

“Previous performances of ‘All the Sex I’ve Ever Had’ have been thought provoking and truly heartwarming and we can’t wait to see what happens when the show takes on a Gold Coast flavour,” Criena said.

‘All The Sex I’ve Ever Had’ runs from 3-5 October at HOTA, Home of the Arts. Tickets at hota.com.au.
