撮合人人發生(正)不正當的關係 // la- pí tiáo
After nightfall, colorful lights pervade Shanghai Street. Tattooed men are walking about, smoking and swearing; local and foreign beauties are waiting around, soliciting. There are people loitering and taking peeks... A wide range of marginalized people pervade the demographic in this old and complicated red-light district, and are prepared to engage in exchanges at any time. Sex work (prostitution) is one of the oldest professions and originates from instinctual desires.
Sex has long been a taboo in traditional society and is not openly discussed. lā pí tiáo (verb) means to be a pimp; work as a pimp. In this one-to-one performance, a bisexual sex worker will be invited to verbally engage the audience in sexual and/or nonsexual matters in relation to oneself and social issues.
