Event Details

Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair aka Pony Express are exciting emerging voices in radical live art encounters.

Leigh Robb, Curator of Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of South Australia

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.

Metered street parking is directly opposite Domain House. The nearest tram stop, Domain Interchange/ St Kilda Road is a 10-minute walk. Accessible parking bays are marked on this map of the Gardens.
