P.O.R.N. Portrait of Restless Narcissism

Can one escape the labyrinth of pornoculture, a culture harnessed to the society of spectacle that has invaded every aspect of daily life?

Nadia Ross and Christian Lapointe began an intense dialogue following their co-nomination for the 2016 Siminovitch Prize for theatre directors. Both known for their artistic visions and unique creations, this collaboration is a natural extension of their artistic temperaments. Their discussions led them to an ongoing process-based project where they use what they have on hand to explore the web of pornculture:  from selfies to food porn, performance to shoe porn. How can one get out of something that is in everything?
