Unzipped Theatre are leading a reflective and participatory workshop that looks at societal perceptions and messaging around sex, sex education, and asks how we best support today’s young people to make informed choices and have confidence to prioritise themselves and assert their needs in sexual situations.

The workshop will involve discussion and reflective tasks around the following prompts:

  • Where/how do we gain our knowledge about sex? What are we taught?
  • What do we wish we were told?
  • What are our hopes and wishes for what young people are taught about sex?
  • What is needed in order to achieve this?
  • Small action we can take/create in our own lives to work towards this goal?

They have two shows at Brighton Fringe this year, both tackle themes explored in the workshop. My first time was in a car park by Phoebe Wood and Lost, Anxious, In your twenties? by Betsy Robertson. The workshop will involve short performances of these.

Suitable for 14+
