Festival Explicit

Films, conferences, exhibitions, shows and performances…
Explicit will blend theoretical and artistic, clever and direct, historical and contemporary approaches to the explicit through a multitude of expression.
Sexuality is a cultural, political and social object and not only personal and intimate, hence the necessity to create representations of it that push boundaries and question our bodies.
Queer, post-porn, sex-positive feminism, porn studies and sexual counter-cultures are based on the political and artistic desire to blur identities, create emancipatory spaces, and promote the body as a place of strength, joy and dispute.
This research coincides with that conducted around art and contemporary performing arts.
The Explicit programme aims to promote these intersections by giving a voice to avant-garde scenes that invent and analyse representations of ‘sexuality’ beyond the dominant codes and norms.

Explicit festival is an event programmed by company A contre poil du sens for Humain trop humain - National Dramatic Center of Montpellier.
