Goodbye_porn: A “rave in the making”
Groundbreaking multimedia sex/rave/art/dance/theater performance “Goodbye_p0rn” finally premieres at the Grand Theatre Groningen on December 20 and December 21, 2023.
From the creators:
Goodbye_p0rn is the latest creation of dance and performance company Teddy’s Last Ride and after a steamy festival tour, it will premiere at the Grand Theatre in Groningen on December 20 and 21. This will be followed by a tour along Amsterdam, Nijmegen and Haarlem.
Goodbye_p0rn is an exploratory club experience about queer intimacy, club spaces and promiscuity. This rave in the making aims to explore and portray different ways we can be intimate with each other by deconstructing pornography and normative sexuality. Through moving limbs, risk taking, yet vulnerable physicalities and techno, four bodies will take you on a clubbing journey into pleasure and intimacy, by removing the shame and taboos that often follow sexuality, and inviting you to shed your own assumptions on what intimacy can be and look like.

Jennifer Lyon Bell: Intimacy coordinator for
It was a privilege to be asked to work as Goodbye_p0rn’s intimacy coordinator. I collaborated with with Teddy’s Last Ride to help think through the thematic intimacy sexuality and queerness ideas posed by the development of the Goodbye_p0rn performance. Over the course of six months I led two custom workshops with the team as their intimacy coordinator.
Creative collaboration with the dancers
After the premiere, Wednesday December 20, 2023, I’ll engage in an aftertalk with Goodbye_p0rn choreographer Iacopo Loliva, to share how I camein, how we worked together, and how we feel intimacy coordination might have helped the performers and the process.
