‘Whore’ – Storytelling About Sex Work

MEDIA RELEASE
Media Release: charlatan clinic
Wednesday, 7 May 2014

charlatan clinic’s confronting new work ‘Whore’ in collaboration with Printable Reality, begins 29 May performing at Lifewise Merge Cafe in Karangahape Road, Ponsonby.

‘Whore’ delves into the lives of six characters (‘Rent boy’, ‘Refugee’, ‘Illegal migrant’, ‘Married woman’, ‘Underage sex worker’ and ‘Transgender’) played by Lee Ah Yen Faatoia, Rebecca Parr and Geraldine Creff, who have written about their experience on the charlatan clinic blog.

Fergusson has met with Auckland sex workers and conducted interviews to gain insight and understanding, for the purpose of honest storytelling. She is fascinated why society think ‘Whore’ is a dirty word. Fergusson says “Sex work is heavily stigmatised and misunderstood in society. Hopefully my play brings truth, and challenges perception.”

Lifewise Merge Cafe will be converted into an intimate theatre space, seating up to 60 people per show. There will also be a photo gallery of the making of ‘Whore’, and audio interviews about sex work at the venue.

‘Whore’ is proudly supported and sponsored by Lifewise, Splice, Printable Reality, NZ Stage, The Makeup School, Paper Bag Princess, NZPC and Four Eyes Media.

Tickets $10 – Door Sales Only
‘Whore’ season runs 29 May – 1 June @8pm, Lifewise Merge Cafe, 453 Karangahape Road, Ponsonby.
