TISSUE

20 - 23 JUNE 2018     SUBIACO ARTS CENTRE

"CLICK. DOOR'S LOCKED. CLICK. SITE'S OPEN. CLICK. TOP RATED. CLICK. FOUR MINUTES FIFTEEN. CLICK. THAT'S HOT. CLICK. SKIP TO THE GOOD BIT. CLICK..."

We’re overstimulated, oversexed and oversexualised: We’re completely under prepared. From the minds of Timothy Green and Samantha Nerida comes this invitation to join two lovers as they navigate this fraught path of sex, lies and camera phones.

 

Tissue confronts secrecy vs privacy and intimacy vs entertainment with an explosive chorus of Perth actors and red-hot energy. It’s a love story, it’s a tragedy, it’s a challenge, and we’re not afraid to show a little skin.

 

But focus, folks. We want you to watch with your brains as well as your bits. This show is an interrogation of shame culture, intimacy and communication, questioning the effect porn has on young Australians. If we strip away stigma, does the ‘sin’ lie in the products themselves, or the way we talk about them?

 

Premiering at The Blue Room Theatre in 2016 to rave reviews, Tissue is back and bolder than ever. The latest work from Static Drive Co, Tissue is a sexy show with a spotlight pointed right at your browser history.

PRAISE FOR TISSUE

"Twenty minutes or so into Samantha Maclean and Timothy Green’s slick, erotically-charged Tissue, I stopped taking reviewer’s notes. My last scribble, a not particularly perceptive “Oh Boy! Wowee!”, was testament to both the sheer quantity of its action, and the dazzling way it had been delivered."

"Biagioni again shows why she's one of our most compelling actors"

"The show is technically near-perfect; Maclean and Green have coached their cast extraordinarily well"

David Zampatti, The West Australian,

"Tissue is brilliant."
