Building a consensual and pleasure-forward relationship to ourselves changes what’s possible for everyone we’re in direct and indirect relationship with. Pleasure is threatening to patriarchal capitalism precisely because once we unlock our pleasure, we become undeniably powerful. This experimental piece is an invitation to witness Che Che, and their anchor partner Frankie Simone, as permission-giving mirrors of erotic embodiment.
A sharing of stories and naked truths. Features solos from young nudist movers; celebrating their queer experiences with finding confidence & body positivity, embracing sexuality & self-expression, and harboring lasting relationships & community.
Che Che Luna (they/them) is a neurodivergent, queer, non-binary latine artist. Through sex + pleasure education, activism, dance and group facilitation, they aim to bridge the gaps in pleasure accessibility so that folks can (re)build consensual and affirming relationships with themselves and others. They are currently planting roots on the ancestral land of the Kumeyaay People.
Using their background as a competitive gymnast, aerialist and professional dancer, Che Che is deeply interested in co-creating containers that invite people to reclaim their pleasure and eroticism. They currently offer a variety of workshops, online courses and community gatherings. You can learn more about their work on IG @che.che.luna or on their website checheluna.com
