Lust and marriage, they go together like … electricity and porridge? Dance Naked Productions Artistic Director Eleanor O’Brien explores the search for love, lust and life partners in this candid look at modern marriage.
Does hot monogamy exist? Can polyamory save the happily ever after? #WWDSD? (“What Would Dan Savage Do?”).
O’Brien is known for edgy, authentic stories that illuminate aspects of sexuality often labeled “private.” In this revealing solo performance, she examines cultural beliefs around monogamy, monotony, jealousy and polyamory from a highly personal perspective.

“Engrossing…. O’Brien recounts it all with verve and zip and generous heaps of humor… moving easily from autobiographical anecdotes to broader musings about sex, love and marriage. With a presence that’s sympathetic and engaging—and a refreshing lack of preachiness—O’Brien poses questions that transcend her particular experiences. And it’s that ability, even as she’s describing a threesome with her husband and a Bettie Page lookalike or a near-epileptic fit at an ayahuasca retreat, that makes this show stick.”
-Willamette Week

“At the core there is a truth about O’Brien’s own awakening…..As far as expanding consciousness and entertaining, Oh yeah. Mission accomplished. It was a fascinating show, to watch her trace this path, her ideas about having multiple partners. She is luminous in this show as a performer, and totally riveting to watch.”
