A multimedia production created & performed by Sex Workers & friends, The Sex Workers' Opera offers an unflinchingly honest, upliftingly human insight into the lives of sex workers around the world.

Running from: Wednesday 22 November – Saturday 2 December.

A street worker giving marital advice...
A webcam model and her ventriloquist dummy…
A daughter making career choices in a male-dominated world…

"Whether you want to save us, judge us, lust for us or empathise, come down for a night of opera to hip-hopera, contemporary dance to pole dance, where Sex Workers take back the stage to tell our own stories in our own words."

Created through a series of workshops run by XX (Experimental Experience theatre company), featuring over 60 stories sent in from around the world, and a cast and crew of at least 50% Sex Workers, this is a rare opportunity to hear stories from a hidden and misrepresented world from the workers themselves.
