My next theatre project is all about sex worker’s and their stories from the street.
Paying for sexual services is commonplace (in brothels or on the street), dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. So why is prostitution legal in some countries, and a death sentence in others?
“The Prostitution Reform Bill passed parliament on 25 June 2003. The parts decriminalising soliciting, brothel keeping, procuring and living on the earnings, came into effect on 28 June 2003.”
I am working with the NZPC (NZ Prostitute Collective) to gain understanding and insight into some of the lives of (local) sex workers, who choose to share their stories, warts and all.
‘Whore’ is performing in May 2014, more details to come on the blog.
