SEX ED by Visceral Abstractions
by House of Yes!
$15 – $35
Toss the pamphlets, ditch the preconceptions, and prepare to pop that cherry as we give you a long overdue re-education on the birds and the bees, warring sperm, dancing labia, and one very lovesick pubic louse. A schooling by way of a three-act extravaganza. Snickering is tolerated and encouraged.
Visceral Abstractions returns to House of Yes with Sex Ed! We peek into the sometimes complicated, often absurd journey from conception to sexual “maturity”.
Part aerial acrobatics, part puppetry, part tolerable musical dance numbers, Sex Ed means to titillate and re-educate at the same time.
Come prepared with questions. Class is in session.
Featuring Dana Abrassart, Tamara Ochoa, Juanita Cardenas, Julie Atlas Muz, Matt Roper, Erin Duffee, Maya Shah, John Jonny, and Eric Schmalenberger with additional voice work by Daisy press and special musical design by DJ Dropkat.

International Day of Older Persons
2019 Theme: “The Journey to Age Equality”
The 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognize that development will only be achievable if it is inclusive of all ages. Empowering older persons in all dimensions of development, including promoting their active participation in social, economic and political life, is one way to ensure their inclusiveness and reduce inequalities.
The 2019 theme is aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 10 (SDG 10) and focuses on pathways of coping with existing — and preventing future — old age inequalities. SDG 10 sets to reduce inequality within — and among — countries, and aims to “ensure equal opportunity and reduce inequalities of outcome,” including through measures to eliminate discrimination, and to “empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status.”
Often, disparities in old age reflect an accumulated disadvantage characterized by factors such as: location, gender, socio‐economic status, health and income. Between 2015 and 2030, the number of people aged 60 and over is expected to increase from 901 million to 1.4 billion. In this regard, trends of ageing and economic inequality interact across generations and rapid population ageing, demographic and societal or structural changes alone, can exacerbate older age inequalities, thereby limiting economic growth and social cohesion.
The 2019 theme aims to:
- Draw attention to the existence of old age inequalities and how this often results from a cumulation of disadvantages throughout life, and highlight intergenerational risk of increased old age inequalities.
- Bring awareness to the urgency of coping with existing — and preventing future — old age inequalities.
- Explore societal and structural changes in view of life course policies: life-long learning, proactive and adaptive labour policies, social protection and universal health coverage.
- Reflect on best practices, lessons and progress on the journey to ending older age inequalities and changing negative narratives and stereotypes involving “old age.”
