“A hedonistic Eden for a post-sustainable age” – Olivia Parkes, Vice Magazine

Ecosexual Bathhouse is an immersive experience inviting you to leave the urban wasteland behind and open yourself up to an intimate encounter with the biosphere.

Perth-based artist collective Pony Express offer up a cave of wonder with a variety of eco-erotic experiences. Experiment with pollination, unwind in the sauna or be guided by a bathhouse regular toward your own organic awakening. Catering to all—from the mildly bio-curious to the environmentally experienced—we encourage you to embrace the earth and give in to your budding naturist.

Drawing on the Eco-sex manifesto by Annie Sprinkle and Dr Elizabeth Stephens, Ecosexual Bathhouse explores a radical environmentalism where the political becomes very personal. The six awe-inspiring spaces of Ecosexual Bathhouse invite us to reconsider the relationship between humans and nature: because if we can learn to the love the Earth, then maybe we can save it.

Access:

Ecosexual Bathhouse is a roving, self-guided experience. Patrons wishing to take advantage of audio described and tactile services will be led through the performance space by a guide and encouraged to encounter the work through a facilitated sensory and audio described experience. Please let us know in advance to book in with one of our guides. Written pre-show notes will also be available from our website prior to the performance.

The duration of this performance will be approximately 1 hour. Patrons are admitted every 20 minutes.
