(W/HOLE) Episode 7 – Rent


An improvised duet leads to mouth inspections, which evolves into performers negotiating layered dynamics; finally, a soloist moves sculpturally in a jockstrap.

Special Guest and Trouble Clef simultaneously begin stream of conscious improvisations through gesture, words and memory. They each share fragments and jump quickly from one moment to the next, ending by staring into each other’s mouths. The mouth exploration continues as they are joined by Parts Authority, the Shape, Ginny Woolf, and Trouble Clef. The performers add layers of action and dynamic, each engaging another’s body in a different way. The scene then moves to Parts Authority, who begins trimming their pubic hair with an electric clipper while reciting a poem detailing a past relationship. They lie, sit, and move around the table in abstract positions in a jockstrap and rope binder.

(W/HOLE) is an evening-length film created by queer/feminist porn collective AORTA films in collaboration with performance company the A.O. Movement Collective, exploring the incredible potency of queer hedonism, specifically how the authentic performativity of kink and queer porn can evolve trauma into orgasm, and grief into politically radical, transformative, body-based joy. The film investigates the complexity of pleasure, exploring the so-called obscenity of bodies in their most tremendous capacity—their glorious, illicit humanity.

(W/HOLE) premiered at the Invisible Dog Art Center and has won Best Film (Fiction) at the Vienna Porn Film Festival, Best Feature at the Hacker Porn Film Festival in Rome, additionally screening at the London Porn Film Festival (closing film), BRIEFS erotic short film competition, BU Festival, LADYFEST Maastricht, Los Angeles Underground Film Forum, SECS Fest, and the Berlin Porn Film Festival.
