RED ROOM (2019)
Red Room is a show that investigates prostitution through disciplines such as dance, the audiovisual and the theater. And it does it from a previous documentary, Nude, in which Susanna Barranco analyzed sexual work from a gender perspective and through interviews with workers in the field and with collectives and people with different positions. In 2018, the documentary received the special mention of the Josep Maria Planes prize for journalistic research.
In Red Room, the dancer Sol Picó and Susanna Barranco co-direct a polyhedral and transversal show in which they will use theater and dance to explain the reality and diversity of the collective sex workers, to discuss the positions of legalizing platforms and abolitionists , to treat the idea of the body as an object and source of desire or look for the red lines of the sex industry.
