While Xray methodically, and erotically, pierces his subject’s arm with 40 identical needles, an aide narrates legal cases involving BDSM. Before each round of piercings, the subject must give consent. The piece questions current methods of consent, and challenges societal taboos.

Performer is available for touring. Contact Dhana@thetheateroffensive.org for inquiries.

Xray Aims (Creator/Performer) is a performance and installation artist who uses temporary piercing as the medium to investigate the body, the built environment and the fight between beauty and pain. In I Consent, Aims explores the desire, and action, of submission as well as the phenomenon of consent. More information and work can be found at http://www.truthserum.org/xrayaims.
