The NarcoSexuals

Dries Verhoeven | NL

Share this show

Dark rooms and gay bars have been driven out of the relative safety of city centers. With the living installation The NarcoSexuals, theatre maker Dries Verhoeven puts gay men in the spotlight who – in anonymous living rooms – surrender to sexual drug use. Not without risk, but they take care of each other. Does ‘society’ allow them to put their lives on the line?
