Carrie Ahern Dance Presents:

“Sex Status 2.0”


October 24-November 10, 2018

Wed-Sat @8PM

more feminism- less bullshit

“Sex Status 2.0” takes Simone de Beauvoir's 1949 feminist masterpiece The Second Sex as a jumping off point for a different take on dance performance. Created by choreographer Carrie Ahern in collaboration with performers Carolyn Hall,Kelly Hayes, Donna Costello, Elke Rindfleisch, Anne Parichon, Jennifer Chin, composer and vocalist Starr Busby, lighting designer Jay Ryan, and costume consultant Naoko Nagata; Sex Status 2.0 explores our conditioning as women and what still needs to be uncovered, or shifted. What is authentic femininity? Where does our power lie? What are our deepest desires?

This diverse group of female performers partners with door jambs, end tables, window sills and the audience in dutiful, wild, uncomfortable, funny and surprising explorations through the 'Female Gaze', 'Touch Preferences/Consent' and the 'Audience Sex/Cleaning Survey'. Sex Status 2.0 has a porous relationship with 'public' and 'private', 'performance' and 'experience'.  Sex Status 2.0 will be performed in private homes throughout NYC Oct 24-Nov 10, 2018.
