An intimate, funny, dirty and moving show that triangulates the sex and love letters of long-dead artists, contemporary sexts and a meditation on the construction of the queer female body. What role does writing play in creating our sexual identity? How do we write ourselves and for whom? How have newer, faster methods of communication changed the way we write desire?

The show features a series of letters from dead writers, artists and a monk. Among them are James Joyce, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Mozart, Charles Bukowski, Radclyffe Hall, Eleanor Roosevelt and others. Background "In June 2016, immediately after the Brexit vote, I was depressed and found myself in upstate New York. To cheer me up, performer Scott Sheppard read me some sex letters from James Joyce to Nora Barnacle. They were extremely explicit and surprisingly beautiful." Upon returning home, Mars went looking for other fantastic sex and love letters, and with the help of the Internet, friends and two sexologists - Jana Funke and Lena Wanggren - have unearthed letters dating back centuries. She also called out people's sexts and dating app chats, revisiting the ways she had used writing to construct her own identity. The result is a kind of queer live archive of desire, communication and writing pleasure.
