FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Madison Young Performs Northwest Premier of ‘Reveal All Fear Nothing’ in Portland, Oregon at Mister Theater August 31st – September 10th
Feminist Porn Icon Presents Modern Adaptation of Annie Sprinkle’s ‘Post Porn Modernist’ in Portland, Oregon, Before Embarking on US Tour!
PORTLAND (June 7, 2017) – Author, radical feminist performance artist, and feminist porn director, Madison Young, offers an alternative to your backyard barbeque on labor day weekend, with the Northwest premier of her new theater piece, “Reveal All Fear Nothing: A Journey in Sex, Love, Porn and Feminism” August 31st – Sept 10th directed by Sophia La Paglia and co-written and developed with the legendary Annie Sprinkle.
Held in a new edgy intimate theater in the inner SouthEast quadrant of Portland, Mister Theater in conjunction with Madison Young is helping to keep Portland weird with experimental theater.
“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 run August 31st – September 10th at the Mister Theater, 1847 East Burnside St,Studio #101,Portland, OR 97214. Tickets ($30 – $99) may be purchased in advance at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/madison-youngs-reveal-all-fear-nothinga-journey-in-sexlove-porn-and-feminism-tickets-34812798016 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.
