FRINGE FEST REVIEW: Slut (R)evolution (no one gets there overnight)

Victoria Event Centre, 1415 Broad St. Aug. 29, 8:15 p.m.; Aug. 31, 8:15 p.m.; Sept. 1, 1:15.

Slut (R)evolution is Cameryn Moore’s intimate confessional of a self-proclaimed slut. In it she talks of experiences and ponders the origins of her strong and somewhat unorthodox sexual appetite. While recreating conversations (that usually lead to hookups) or simply recounting events, the audience is taken for a tour into a world of BDSM clubs and online-arranged rendezvous.

While overall the piece had more in the way of shock value than substance or a point, it nonetheless honestly tackles subjects and a lifestyle often either shamed or glamourized by pop culture (*cough* Fifty Shades *cough*). Not all may agree with Moore’s “yes” philosophy but I doubt there are many among us who don’t want to hear about it.

Victoria Event Centre, 1415 Broad St. Aug. 29, 8:15 p.m.; Aug. 31, 8:15 p.m.; Sept. 1, 1:15.
