You lucky, lucky people of Nozstock, do we have a treat in store for you! As the sun sets over the Dingle, the Bantam of the Opera Theatre transforms into a realm decadence and delight in The Velveteen Valley.
Join Ophelia Bitz , the smut peddling pin up, through a journey of erotic cinema, slapstick comedy and porno sing alongs. ArtWank seeks to stir debate amongst you dashing modern people about the nature of human sexuality. The show will make you hoot with laughter at every available opportunity. Rolling in the aisles helpless with mirth is vigorously encouraged, even for snort-laughers.
Taking all the very best, sauciest, silliest and most interesting developments from the speak-easy style ArtWank! events and brand new songs, 2012’s show is a more refined, linear and directly political affair, studded liberally with rare antique skin flicks and crimes against pop music.
Seeking neither to condone nor condemn pornography, ArtWank’s aims are compassionate debate of contemporary sexuality and the use of cabaret for explicitly political purposes.
