Modeling: Staged Reading

Hosted by Upintheair Theatre

Upintheair Theatre Presents a Reading of seeley quest’s Modeling

“Two physically disabled artists grapple with erotics and power during their first modeling shoot together”

Professional art model Marlo meets new client photographer Sandy: while shooting Sandy pushes boundaries bringing unexpected sexual energy. Sandy interrogates Marlo about relationship to body, disability, sexuality, exposure and control. Marlo is seduced and challenged, also questions and unsettles Sandy. Sexual tension and sparring increases; tempted, they’re also jarred by how pressures regarding disability and power drive each of them. 

The characters aren’t assigned genders; roles played by different genders will highlight different dynamics. Developed in collaboration with disabled trained and untrained actors, Modeling centres questions of desire, consent, embodiment, and intimate labour.

Venue: Online Zoom 60 minutes May 28 4:00 PM PDT
