Come Inside 2018

Making the risqué relatable!

October 1st-14th, 2018

+ Opening Night Gala October 1st at the Alberta Rose Theatre

Come for the titillation,

stay for the conversations

Come Inside 2018 is a collection of sex-positive performances from across the spectrum of sexual identity.

Eight performers from around the world are bringing their shows to Portland for a theater festival unlike any other. 

Illuminating, inclusive and often hilarious, these stories resonate with emotional intimacy and theatrical flair. They celebrate sex (all kinds of sex) and the right to sexual expression. 

They offer thought-provoking, mind-expanding stories, curative comedy, restorative erotica, and stimulating post-show conversations.

Come Inside.... and meet your tribe

From around the world come eight performances that will inspire and delight you (and maybe turn you on). 

Illuminating, inclusive, and often, hilarious, these story tellers have created shows that explore the spectrum of sexual orientation and fascination. 

Like Brené Brown on steroids, these shows are intimate, authentic, erotic, and often, downright wholesome. (because our sexual selves are part of the whole, right?)

The festival will include a play reading-Tip of the Tongue by author and playwright Allison Moon - and a workshop production from local artist Melanie Moseley, Sexology! The Musical.

There will be a special edition of Stand Up Smut (Dance Naked's infamous erotic open mic). 

Buy a pass and see every show. 

Join the post show conversations.  

Meet the artists. 

Meet other humans interested in the topic of sexual expression. 

Maybe even tell a story of your own?

Or just come and watch. 

Come Inside and connect.
