A welcome and last minute replacement to the 2013 Ottawa fringe Festival, slut (r)evolution is Cameryn Moore’s autobiographical tale about her sexual awakening and exploration. It’s one of three shows that have all been well traveled to critical acclaim.
Should you see it?
slut (r)evolution is Cameryn Moore’s self-discovery. True stories of her learning to discover and explore her sexuality. It’s the second of her trio of very popular, very sexy shows that have performed to critical acclaim internationally.
I’m a supporter of the Sex Positive movement so I’m happy this show (and Cameryn Moore, and others like her) are there to make people aware, encourage them to be themselves, push them beyond society’s constraints, or just plain shock them. I’m happy to support this show on those merits.
That said, Slut (r)evolution just never grabbed me. Maybe it was the onset of Fringe fatigue where on day ten (after 20+ shows) it takes greater effort to keep my interest. Maybe I’ve seen and embraced enough of the Sex Positive message that this show felt tame, and so not that interesting. Or maybe Cameryn Moore was tired the day I was there, and just not bringing it enough to draw me in. Maybe it was a combination of all of those. I don’t know.
I just know slut (r)revolution didn’t engage me and Moore didn’t make me all that interested in what was going on. At least not nearly as much as I’d hoped it would. It wasn’t until we got to Moore’s visit to Burning Man that I felt any connection or energy from Moore at all. Then, just as it, er, climaxed, it was over – as such things go I suppose. So in the end, I was left somewhat unsatisfied.
This is another show that all I can really say is that — “It wasn’t for me” — because while that’s true, I know a lot of people who enjoyed it, laughed and/or got a lot out of it. Your mileage will vary.
But that’s just my opinion and I’d love to know what you think? Were you shocked by Moore’s story? Did you find her hilarious and I miss the boat entirely? Tell me in the comments below.
