This piece is an invitation. For the audience of this is what you want 2012. An audience bombarded and inspired by the experience of other peoples work on desires over the week.

What is it that YOU want?  Do you know?  Does it matter?

What happens when you share it with others?

What sort of people do you want to share it with? (lover? friend? priest? teacher? student?)

What if you confessed a fake desire?  Or…someone else’s desire?

What is the value of speaking what you desire?

How valuable is your desire to you? Can you profit from speaking it?

What if you had to pay to say it to others?  Would you say it with passion? What if you said it indifferently?  What would you do if your desire could be fulfilled?

This is What YOU Want is a piece that provides us with a framework to explore these and other questions around an economy of desire.

As the culmination of TIWIW2012, Center or Sex and Culture hosts a participatory exploration conceived by Tessa Wills and Directed by TT Baum, developed with assistance from artists and Bay Area luminaries:  Kirk Read, Cayenne, Pele, Syd Blaekovitch, Sadie Lune, Praney, Christraper, Brontez, Ariadne, Syd Nova, Elizabeth McSturdy,  SiouxsieQ, Ian Waisler, Minax, Annie Danger, Captain Snowden, and Carol Queen. 

Tickets are $15 – $25 (with “appointment times” attached) this exploration is an hour long, and it will be presented in three stages. You can say a desire to the charger of your choosing,  rememeber that if you ask, maybe you will get what you desire… or not.   And maybe it will answer some of the questions above. Or not. Make it risky, make it profound. Or not!

We are expecting it to be many things, especially fun.

For a five hour performance exploration in unchartered territory between sensual practices and art practices, between performance and happening, embodying the theme of “This Is What I Want 2012″, and making the site of that research of the economy of desire culminate in your personal experience.

Up until recently, his performances were largely confined to living rooms. In 2009 he started to move into the public arena, sitting in with friends’ bands and playing the occasional public cameo performance. In 2011, Dr. Notorious took it up a notch. His solo debut was January 8, 2011 at the Bazaar Cafe in San Francisco. He’s since performed at the Trickster Arts Salon at Mission Control, recurring gigs at the Bazaar Cafe, at Center Camp Cafe Stage at Burning Man, at SF Decompression and more.Princess Cream Pie delights audiences throughout the Bay Area with charming song parodies about Cleveland Steamers and South Korean gonorrhea, and usually has candy stowed up her skirt.

The princess is always happy to explain the baffling process of puberty to tender young minds. Tizzy WallTizzy Wall is a pro-domme, sex blogger, theatre rat, and otherwise irreverent lady of all trades.  She strives to help create a sex and body positive world, preach radical compassion and speak her mind without fear. When she isn’t delightfully flogging someone, or writing for the Playpen Report, she spends her time playing the ukulele, cuddling her drooling cat, or falling down the blackhole of the internet. Red Hots Burlesque Star Laika FoxA sexy soviet space cadet with a heart of platinum, Laika Fox has been charming hearts and minds around the Bay Area to the moon and back for over two years. Laika has a penchant for the strange, absurd, and hilarious flavors of Burlesque and isn’t afraid to fly her nerd flag high! AustintatiousAustin hails from the South, and a long lineage of storytellers. Austin is an adrenaline junky in every way and has been fervently collecting experiences since she was able to sneak out of her parent’s house. She has an irreverent sense of humor and a loud mouth, but still packs a southern charm. She may be the South’s black sheep, but she still has a pair of high heels next to her steel toed boots and can set a proper table that would make Emily Post proud. Austin is a writer, tour guide, EMT and a carpenter/rigger/welder for large art sculpture. She’s a Jill of all trades who seriously needs a job. EditrixAbbyYour hostess and emcee, EditrixAbby is a blogger, barmaid, storyteller and experience junkie. She has been published in dozens of porn magazines and web sites, produced weekly fetish events for over seven years, given away loads of free porn and generally made her mark in naughty nightlife from Manhattan to the Bay Area.
