OPIA investigates the shame and power associated with sex. As an all female cast, we explore how exploitation and media have influenced our relationships with sex and our own bodies. We call upon our dancers to guide us through this creation process. Our rehearsals are inclusive of variety of different methods, such as conducting interviews, giving artists prompts or tasks, and creating a space to freely express ourselves as individuals. Through this process, we discover how this research could bring us a sense of power and freedom in our own sexual experiences.
