MiddleSexGorge Background Image



MiddleSexGorge - Stephen Petronio (1990) 

Pulsating, vigorous and set to a pounding track by seminal punk rock outfit Wire, MiddleSexGorge aims bold moves directly at its audience. A defiant act of outrage created around Petronio and his then partner Michael Clark, it is as much political as it is a work of art. Fast, fierce and jagged, this is a hedonistic delight. 

Choreography: Stephen Petronio
Music: Wire
