In collaboration with Studio 58/Langara College, Neworld Theatre has developed a new work that asks, “What does it mean to have grown up with the internet and readily available representations of sexuality?”. Beginning with a workshop performance showcased in the Risky Nights series last spring (titled The P*rn Project), Neworld has continued to collaborate with Studio 58 students to expand the piece, with further explorations into the personal, social, and ideological consequences of growing up as part of the first generation with unfettered and on-demand access to internet pornography.
