Miseducated: An Oral History of Sexual (Mis)Education
Flesh Mob presents the world premiere of Miseducated, an interdisciplinary dance-theatre work exploring the sensitive and fertile subject matter of Sex Ed. Using recordings and transcripts of interviews conducted with dozens of survivors of Americas sexual education system, Miseducated transforms the material of these stories into a dynamic and provocative physical performance.

Sex is funny, stupid, gross, divine, and base, and well never stop being titillated or discomforted by it. We'll also never stop learning, confesses co-creator Hilary Preston. Miseducated is our attempt to braid together the threads of absurdity, hilarity, awkwardness, shame, and trauma, implicating ourselves, our community, and the audience in the process.

Flesh Mob is a performance collective exploring the boundaries of movement, storytelling, documents, and space. Made up of burlesque/performance artist Peekaboo Pointe (USA), theatre artist/physical comedian Ben Gorodetsky (Canada), and dancer/writer Hilary Preston (USA), Flesh Mob's work addresses topics of sex, identity, and education. The core members of Flesh Mob met as students in the Performance and Interactive Media Arts program at Brooklyn College. Individually they have been presented and/or commissioned by Movement Research at Judson Church, The Wild Project, Slipper Room, Duane Park, Bizarre, Chinook, Gas Station Arts Centre, Chutzpah, Mile Zero Dance, Rapid Fire Theatre, Bad Dog, and SVA. They have worked with other artists such as Taylor Mac, Gesel Mason, Brian Webb, Lin Snelling, and GWAR.

Miseducated features an original score by vocalist and composer Chanan Ben Simon (Israel), text and performance collaboration by Emily Twines (USA), and an ensemble of diverse burlesque performers, theatre artists, and musicians from NYC.
