FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hacienda Studio and Madison Young Bring the Edgy and Sexy Theater Experience ‘Reveal All Fear Nothing’ to Brooklyn, NY on November 3rd and 4th

Feminist Porn Icon Presents Modern Adaptation of the Legendary Annie Sprinkle’s ‘Post Porn Modernist’ in Brooklyn

Brooklyn, NY  Author, radical feminist performance artist, and feminist porn director Madison Young offers an alternative to your typical night at the theater with her new one woman show, “Reveal All Fear Nothing: A Journey in Sex, Love, Porn and Feminism” Nov 3rd and 4th directed by Sophia La Paglia and co-written and developed with the legendary Annie Sprinkle.

“Reveal All Fear Nothing: A Journey in Sex, Love, Porn and Feminism” is a multimedia performance and experimental theater piece, written and performed by Madison Young, and developed in collaboration with the legendary Annie Sprinkle. The piece is a modern adaptation of Sprinkle’s wildly successful and internationally toured theater piece, “Post Porn Modernist,” and aims to crack wide open the sexual underground worlds of BDSM, pornography, and kink, all while demystifying and celebrating these often misunderstood, and misrepresented, communities and movements.

Young and Sprinkle have developed a modern-day version of “Post Porn Modernist,” which brings to life Young’s own unique sexual journey into kink and pornography as a feminist, through fearless performance art. The graphic body-based performance art includes an anal fisting performance piece, a blow-job ballet, and a climactic orgasmic sex magic ritual, which has been handed down from Sprinkle to Young.

Academy Award winner Diablo Cody says of Young’s work, “Young brings some universal truths to light”; actress and thought leader Margaret Cho adds “[Young is]…an incredible and singular force in the world of art…her individualism, innovation, insight and innate intelligence…is downright inspirational.”

“Reveal All Fear Nothing: A Journey in Sex, Love, Porn, and Feminism” will enjoy its short run in Brooklyn November 3rd and 4th at Hacienda Studio, Brooklyn’s Sexiest Place for Learning (www.hacienda.studio). Tickets ($40 – $99) may be purchased in advance at (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hacienda-presents-madison-youngs-reveal-all-fear-nothing-a-journey-in-sex-love-porn-and-feminism-tickets-36643106518) Doors open at 7pm; the show will start promptly at 8pm. This is a 21+ only event.

Following the performance, at 10pm, Young will be hosting an intimate VIP Experience, sponsored by Good Vibrations.
