Through communal workshops and monthly readings, TONGUE, embodies an inclusive and challenging space for all sexualities, genders and races, filmmakers, performers, poets, writers and audience members to share with intention, their voice, truths and writing power with Poet On Watch and friends.
WHAT IS POLITICAL EROTICA:
One who takes issue with much of what might be considered traditional morality in the US and creates a distinctly American form of erotic visual performance literature which she or he draws from the different ethnic, religious and cultural strains of our society, creating contrasts of pleasure, desire, celebration of the body and pain as well as guilt, resentment and deprivation. Recognizing that one can easily lose themselves in the erotic fantasies, the imagery and the heat of the prose . This valuable form of writing and visual art is an important part of culture and the human experience. TONGUE, takes us to the intersection of our desires and our political beliefs; while re-imagining government, bedroom politics and sexual partners.
