Sophie Guisset (BE/DE)



Vanilla explores the relationship of pleasure, sexual desire and food to question normativity in sexual practices. Through the intimate and vulnerable sharing of personal and fictional sex stories, the performance offers a warm and soft exercise of imagination. On stage, the careful preparation and the consumption of sauces is used to highlight the care that is at stake in safe and sound sexual encounters, however radical they might be. Vanilla gently invites the audience to open their sexual fantasy box and to put together their own recipe.
