WEDNESDAY 28th May
A night of Performance, Music and Film presented by Anne Pigalle- an antidote
to the constant bombardment of generic pornographic images we witness
everyday in the media. Erotic Revue is about subjective ideas not homogenic
concepts, which is far more dangerous as it links sex with questions about
desire and love. Anne Pigalle has travelled the world and observed that

a few of her friends..... Let your senses ponder, your imagination flow,
it is the first step towards freedom.
