"A performance that tells the story of one swan floating on a lake of honest desire, it fails to suck and fuck, but comes to realize it’s no big deal.”
The Failure of Sex is the second graduation performance of Maxime Dreesen, graduating in 2019 at de Toneelacademie Maastricht. This time he joins forces with Adrien de Biasi, a Brussels based actor.
A tragicomic performance about the power and imagination of failure. You will meet a naive persona who is exploring sex while it drowns in an ocean of failure.
In this search for the impossible, ultimate, satisfying contact this persona will loose its control and torture itself. This sexual impotence will not lead to the end of a sexual life but will become the main drive of it! Lack as an ongoing interaction. Rather a flabby penis that humps against a body than a perfect erection of a porn actor that fits perfectly into the hole.
