Annie Sprinkle’s Herstory of Porn–Reel to Real

Theater Rhino and the National Queer Arts Festival present Annie Sprinkle’s Herstory of Porn: Reel to Real, a solo performance and film diary that traces her 25-year evolution through the Sexual Revolution. This new work is directed by Emilio Cubeiro, who also originally directed Annie’s infamous hit Post Porn Modernist, which played to sold-out houses.

Get your popcorn! The legendary Annie Sprinkle is going to take you to seven very different movie theaters: the Pink Pussy Cat Sinema, the New Age Sex Multiplex, the Museum of Modern Art, Sappho’s Film Co-op and others. Along the way she will interact with clips from some of the two hundred movies she’s made over the past quarter of a century. The evening comes to a climax with Annie’s newest film Teenage Mermaid Fanta-sea, interactive performance art porn that instructs the audience how to make their own sex movie.

You don’t have to like porn to love this show, which is really about personal growth, sex in society, and the human body. This performance is guaranteed to provoke thought, conversation, and laughgasms. Recommended for anyone interested in sex or filmmaking, and not for anyone offended by strong sexual content.

For the last quarter of a century, Annie Sprinkle has explored sexuality in all of its most glorious (and inglorious) forms. She has shared her findings through filmmaking, writing, photography, teaching workshops, and performing. She’s a sex-work pioneer, an AIDS educator, and out “metamorphosexual” … and proud of it! Ms. Sprinkle was one of the first women to inspire the term sex-positive feminist. Her unique work has achieved international praise and evoked controversy, in both underground and mainstream art/theater worlds.Cosponsored with Good Vibrations.
