Featuring New Zealand’s finest physical theatre practitioners, including director and performer Eve Gordon, Venus Is interprets historic erotic literature in a mix of physical and aerial theatre, dance and song.

A selection of famous authors including Anais Nin, Shakespeare and James Joyce have their works brought to life in this tale, challenging perceptions of sexual relationships and showcasing moments of tragedy and of pure joy.

Venus Is follows the story of an older couple discovering each other anew after spending years side by side. They encounter their memories and forgotten desires, they re-engage with old situations, they discover alternative perspectives on each other’s erotic nature and begin to live with each other once again.

A soundtrack of classical and contemporary music accompanies these stories of discovery, pleasure, altruism and nurture. With an undercurrent of tongue-in-cheek humour, this visceral theatre experience will uplift, entice and of course, titillate.

"A sensual, sumptuous production that captivates and titillates… ‘Venus Is’ is a beautiful look at sexuality and sensuality that really is quite stunning." - Auckland Now
