"It’s the kind of fearless, amorphous mix of interactive comedy, dance, art, and spiritual searching that could only have come out of the head of Friedenberg, a performer who defies categorization on any level." 
- Janet Smith, Georgia Straight

Written and performed by Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg An exploration of faith and faithlessness, life and death from dance-theatre guru Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg, Porno Death Cult is infused with her signature humour and pathos. In a pilgrimage through a strange landscape of longing, a woman, a preacher, and a god, come face to face with each other, and the unanswerable questions that contort our collective perceptions. Director Marcus Youssef (Neworld Theatre) lends his unique style and impeccable eye to this quirky, idiosyncratic fusion of text, dance, character, and prayer for something better. Forever thanks to Nigel Charnock
