HERPES

HERPES

Have you ever dreamed that you’re pregnant and woken up in a cold sweat?

Award-winning artist Eirini Kartsaki (BE Festival Audience Prize & Champ Libre prize) presents a show about desire, STIs, fantasising about the Duchess of Cambridge and not having babies. It plays with eroticism and humour to explore the ways we’re told we need to stop banging the whole world, because if we don’t we will of course get herpes.

HERPES is a refusal to settle down or settle in. It says I want to live my life as if it is mine, because it is mine. Even when what you hear on repeat is: get a husband. Get a mortgage. Have a baby. Be sensible. Be sensible. Be sensible.
