WARNING: This project contains coarse language, explicit sexual content, depiction of sexual violence, and is recommended for audiences aged 16 and older.

 

In collaboration with Studio 58/Langara College, Neworld Theatre has developed a new work that asks, “What does it mean to have grown up with the internet and readily available representations of sexuality?”.  Beginning with a workshop performance showcased in the Risky Nights series last spring, Neworld has continued to collaborate with Studio 58 students to expand the piece, with further explorations into the personal, social, and ideological consequences of growing up as part of the first generation with unfettered and on-demand access to internet pornography. 

 

Produced in conjunction with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) research project, IMPACTS: Collaborations to Address Sexual Violence on Campus.

Framed with a highly theatrical metaphor Mortified explores youth and influence, rebellion and belonging. A woman runs into a man from her past and is surprised by the power he still holds over her. In an attempt to uncover the truth of what happened between them, she recalls her adolescent self: a 14-year-old synchronized swimmer, struggling to make sense of the world around her. Humorous and dark, Mortified explores sex, shame and transformation and how we reckon with the experiences that have shaped us.
