Pony Express (WA/USA)
Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair aka Pony Express are exciting emerging voices in radical live art encounters.
Are you eco-curious? Are you environmentally-oriented? Into getting dirty? Let go of your inhibition and embrace a new sexual identity where the biosphere becomes your lover.
Ecosexual Bathhouse plunges you into an immersive labyrinth of intimate encounters and sensory interaction.
Sprouting from the Eco-Sex Manifesto by Dr Elizabeth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle, ecosexuality is a burgeoning queer identity that positions the environment as an erotic partner.
Ecosexual Bathhouse imagines a world where this identity is on the brink of becoming mainstream, where those of green persuasion have a place to express their deepest ecological desires.
Let’s create a safe space to get in touch with nature and celebrate biodiversity – because if we can learn to the love the Earth, maybe we can save it.
