Spill: A Verbatim show about Sex
★★★★★ Broadway Baby | ★★★★★ EdFringe Review
Bloody hell, erm...I have no idea, I have never tried to describe an orgasm before. It's like a little treat, isn't it? Yeah, it's like a little treat, I think...
We're making a show about sex. Because it's important. Because everyone wants to talk about it. Because it's at the start of everything, at the heart of everything. Because we are taught, from such an early age, that we shouldn't be talking about it. That it should be clean, quiet, careful, hairless, monogamous, young, skinny, heterosexual...
We asked the same questions to a variety of people from different backgrounds, sexualities, ages and experiences, to give you an honest look at what sex really is. We want to give you the chance to be voyeurs without feeling guilty about it. We are putting your words in our mouths. Using verbatim text, live music, puppetry and movement, Propolis Theatre explore this age-old topic with playful openness and unflinching sensitivity.
Propolis Theatre are the 5th generation of The Bristol Old Vic’s Made In Bristol Programme (The Wardrobe Ensemble, Tin Can Collective). Spill is Propolis Theatre’s debut studio show and was first performed at The Bristol Old Vic before heading to The Belgrade Theatre, Coventry, The Pleasance Theatre, London and The Wardrobe Theatre, Bristol.
"Here is theatre at its most important: revelatory, witty and didactic without ever sermonising [...] A must-see at the Edinburgh Fringe this year" - A Younger Theatre, 2016
