Using performance, video, dance and documentary resources, the German company Citizen.KANE.Kollektiv highlights issues surrounding prostitution. This playful, free-thinking approach questions our consumer society.

What is the male/female ratio among sex workers? And among their clients? What is the balance of power between one and the other? In our hyper-capitalist modern world, have our bodies and consumerism become inseparable? Following on from Traffic, presented by Guillermina Celedon at the fifth edition of the Sens Interdits Festival in 2017, Girls Boys Love Cash explores the theme of commodification, the links between shame and sexuality and between domination and gender.
“Prostitution is not a side issue that only concerns those living on the margins of society”, explains Christian Müller. In this energy-filled play, the German company makes a range of accurate, wide-ranging observations about our era. Based on a documentary study, Girls Boys Love Cash plays with spectators, questioning and challenging them…
At the end of the play, each member of the audience will find themselves considering a range of analyses and denunciations.

Programmed as part of the Festival Sens Interdits, festival international de théâtre
