Co-created with sex work activists
Open Clasp is back with their first major international production co-created with sex worker activists from Aotearoa/New Zealand, Ireland and the UK.
An underground community of sex workers scattered across the globe and rooted in their fight for justice unknowingly stand together, deciding enough is enough. Spanning space and time from the pandemic, BLM to the Ukrainian War, these 12 powerful activist voices are connected by invisible threads that build the strength and power they need to make change above ground.
From Open Clasp: the feminist theatre company behind Key Change – New York Times Critics’ Pick and Sugar on BBC iPlayer.
“Mycelial is underpinned by our co-creator’s principle in ‘nothing about us without us’. Their voices are centre stage, Open Clasp are the scaffolding. It’s a play about being queer, money, borders and a revolution. Mycelial celebrates the strength and humanity of sex work activists who can’t walk by injustice.” Writer of Mycelial and Artistic Director, Catrina McHugh MBE
