A Sapphic Affair at Alderney Landing
A Sapphic Affair is a poetry-movement hybrid play based on the Poetry of Sappho. A Sapphic Affair is a queer-affirming love story. It is about passion, surrender and vulnerability (with a little bit of rope).
A Sapphic Affair is a queer-affirming love story, centered on femininity and the magnetism of romance and erotic desire. Based on the work of Sappho, the earliest Greek woman poet whose work survives, her verse is intimate, private, addressed to specific women, direct, very gay and very wet. A Sapphic Affair follows the journey of two women, how they bond and surrender to each other, how their fear drives them away, but also how an unbreakable bond brings them back together. In this play, the media of shibari and movement/dance is the story: The depth of their connection, the deepest form of surrender and trust, and emotions and taking on the ropes, literally and figuratively.
