SEXY SHORTS - Sex and Society

Friday the 8 th of November. 22:30h. Teatro Salón Cervantes. 3€

Today, porn is being consumed by an increasingly young audience. There are videos on open platforms explaining how to perform fellatio and all sorts of other sexual practices, and they can be accessed by anyone. People are initiating in sex on the internet and others are sticking with virtual sex and have problems with the real life alternative. However, talking about sex, expressing our desires, transmitting what we want and explaining what we do not want is still difficult for us. So surely it is high time for sex to become a normal topic of conversation, just like anything else.

At ALCINE we are getting the discussion going again, encouraging people to talk, and to carry on talking, about sex, always frankly and with a healthy dose of humour. Sex is part of human life, of society. And society conditions our sexual behaviour. A programme of short films with the common theme of sex will this year help us reflect on the relationship between sex and society, maternity and desire, reality and fiction, and not without making us laugh a little.

Sex is imagination. And in order to talk plainly, our favourite presenter is back: Esther Gimeno, 'the last leading lady of reproductive age, unfazed by a little sweat, she has glamour and nastiness in equal measure, and is ready to counter the renewed vigour of the mantilla and comb brigade'. A comedian in the classical mould: who has more fun talking about sex than doing it...


Esther Gimeno

She has been a stand-up comedian since 2004, performing all over Spain with her own texts at venues such as the comedy night of the famous Café Comercial (Madrid 2011-2012), in the guise of the character Madame Gimeno, 'Call a spade a spade!', in-your-face comedy with her chav alter-ego, the Jenny (September 2015) or 'Fannies, the musical', comic-operatic cabaret (2014- 2017). She has also worked in 'Acacias 38' and presented the ALCINE47 gala, and in November she will be on the Gran Vía in Madrid with 'Everything’s paid', a drag-king monologue with karaoke in which she plays the Duke of Lerma...
