Kate Rhoades + Eli Thorne:
Getting Dirty With Cullwick and Munby
Real Time and Space, Oakland

Hannah Cullwick and Arthur Munby had a wacky 19th century S&M affair. Get a little taste of their fascinating, though sometimes problematic relationship through S&M-inspired exercises and a lively discussion. Bring a partner you trust and wear clothes and shoes (preferably leather boots) that can get dirty. Queer and trans folks warmly welcomed.
