The Best Sex I've Ever Had

Guest performance at Pazz 2010 festival - supported by the Wanderlust Fund

Darren O’Donnell, artistic director of Mammalian Diving Reflex from Canada, takes his performative works into the heart of society and lends a voice to those who are not normally heard, in particular children, youngsters and the elderly. The Best Sex I’ve Ever Had focuses on one of the last great taboos: sex and old age. In preparation for this performance, Mammalian Diving reflex interviewed more than 40 people over the age of 65. The key question: What is the best sex you ever had in your life? Research and development of this artistic project will be continued in Oldenburg for the Pazz Festival.

Artistic director: Darren O‘Donnell / Mammalian Diving Reflex
Participants / artists: Stephanie Comilang, Natalie De Vito, Konstantin Bock, Dorothy Janes, Norman Taylor, Phil Werren u.a.

Wanderlust blog

In February 2010 the participating theatres began sharing their impressions of their joint meetings, workshops, guest performances and co-productions in the Wanderlust blog. In addition each season, three Pfadfinder (scouts) headed out to visite the Wanderlust projects, describe the international theatre partnerships and documente these exciting cross-border encounters in texts and images.
