Event description

Serial nudist, Frankie van Kan (AKA Frankie Valentine—Stripped Queer, Club Briefs, Baby Got Back, Seen & Heard Cabaret) achieves the improbable task of exposing more of herself than ever before in this deeply intimate piece of confessional theatre. Directed by Maude Davey, 'A Body at Work' is the tale of a queer woman’s sixteen years—and counting, in the adult industry.

Beginning in a strip club, with insightfully refreshing antics of club culture and the perceived power dynamics between workers and clients, Frankie unpacks her own wh*rephobia and the unravelling of boundaries as she leads us through various facets of the industry. As she regales you with stories of the body as a commodity and navigating queerness in this honest and humorous journey Frankie asks the question—will they love me at my Madonna when they’ve relished me at my wh*re?
