Mating Calls is a performance piece that teases out the diverse ways mating systems we find in the animal kingdom. Touted as the sex education class you wish you would have had back in school.
Each performance is unique in that the audience actively participates in the exploration and mapping of a variety of animal mating systems and then turns the mirror on themselves to layer the diverse, and often complex, human sexuality system.
Mating Calls addresses issues of sexual expression, diversity, body politics, and education in a fun, approachable, and thought-provoking manner.
