Vintage Porn, Cabaret and Lectures following SOLD-OUT Launch
Featuring; Host and curator Ophelia Bitz, drag-comedienne-turned-pornstar Myra DuBois and the WI Guide to DIY Sex Toys. Musical accompaniment by Tom Baker
Ophelia Bitz presents a multi-sensory night of rare antique porn, cabaret performance and interactive lectures from contemporary sex professionals at the fantastic multi-media gallery The Horse Hospital. Shows sell out in Brighton and London, and plans to expand ArtWank’s run across the UK are underway…
ArtWank pairs slapstick comedy with erotic cinema, and screens the strangest, funniest, most unusual footage available as well as encouraging porno-sing-alongs, debate and dressing-up.
This month’s guest lecture is brought to you by The WI Ladies Guide to DIY Sex Toys. A reminder that in times of poverty and tabloid-induced anxiety, what the world needs is a wank and a nap, and possibly a little snack. “Brilliantly twisted” The Guardian
Headline performance will be by Myra DuBois! Ravishing neo-drag starlet, high cabaretrix and comedienne du nuit, Myra, the Siren of the North holds forth on her first performance in a porn movie, starring alongside the beautiful Ashley Rider… “Myra is so hot right now” Time Out London
Back by popular demand Maestro accordionista Tom Baker will be pumping his organ furiously to the flickerings of the silver screen and may just treat you to songs of treachery, vodka and sub-aquatic monsters. Or he may just eat your soul. “The unarguable highlight of the show” The Erotic Review
Your resident hostess is the inimitable potty-mouthed pin-up Ophelia Bitz. This classless broad has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Woman's Hour, on Channel 4 and toured with The Tigerlillies, Dresden Dolls and pop star Mika. She has a cabaret residency at Soho’s Madame JoJos every Thursday night.
