We live in a society that manages to be obsessed with sex and deeply repressed about sex at the same time. Sex becomes another commodity titillate to and sell things but conversations about our real sexualities are all too rare. And, if you are over fifty your sexuality is not really a subject at all, unless as a joke. Enter Pangea World Theater once again pushing theater into the spaces unseen, unrecognized, under represented.
No Expiration Date: Sexuality & Aging is a theatrical interpretation of the qualitative data from a study conducted by Drs. Sara Mize and Alex Iantaffi at the Program in Human Sexuality at the University of Minnesota. The play was scripted by Pangea World Theater’s Executive/Literary Director Meena Natarajan from the focus group narratives of 61 seniors of diverse backgrounds and sexual orientations who were gathered to discuss their experiences of sexuality and aging. Directed by Dipankar Mukherjee and Featuring Patricia Enger, Beverly Cottman, Lonny Mclaughlin, Eric Wood, Tinne Rosenmeier, Fawn Wilerson-Legros, Liliana Espondaburu, and Edwin Korte With heart, humor, compassion, and unabashed directness, No Expiration Date: Sexuality & Aging explores the challenges and triumphs associated with aging sex and invites the audience to consider the role of mindfulness. A heartwarming, funny, poignant, naughty, illuminating, inspiring and thought-provoking theatrical experience with a diverse cast, it shows that there is a whole lot to learn from our elders’ experiences in spite of our youth-obsessed media and culture.
