The Brick and The Exponential Festival present
Case Studies: A New Kinsey Report

This event is free and will stream live via twitch.tv/doctorkinsey

Case Studies: A New Kinsey Report takes the legendary Kinsey Report on sexual behavior and brings it to life as audience-generated data mediated through onstage movement. Kinsey’s research on human sexual behavior quickly became a bestseller, ennobling Kinsey as one of the “fathers of the sexual revolution”– but does scientific inquiry of the 1950s meet the needs of contemporary queerness?

Livestreamed from The Brick Theater by ZANNI Productions

Written by Justin Halle
Directed by Dmitri Barcomi
Dramaturgy by Dylan Alexander Gurrera
Starring Nancy Nogood, Arjun Dhawan, and Anna Dresdale

Part drag show, part TED talk, part truth-or-dare; our scientific host, Nancy Nogood, drags past research into contemporary culture. Through salacious anonymous surveys, genre-defying lectures and lip syncs, and audience participation; Case Studies straddles the boundaries between the scientific and the sexual.
