For more information and tickets:
We're all taught anatomy and shown sexuality in the media, but what happens when those definitions and explanations are not enough? The Birds and the Bees: Unabridged explores the unique--yet interwoven--life circumstances of eight women and trans people forced to confront their own shifting identities, struggles, and confusions surrounding their own sexuality.
Through dialogue, movement, song, humor, and multimedia, the performance examines such themes as partner communication, sexual identity, the de-sexualization of aging women, today's "hook-up" culture, and sexual health.
