Puppetry of the Penis

Runtime (in minutes): 50

For all its entertainment potential, the male reproductive organ has never really been all that fun to just sit and stare at. But Simon Morley and David Friend – two ready-and-willing Australians, adorned in socks, sneakers, and a complete lack of shame – make an earnest attempt to change that with an on stage demonstration of ”the ancient art of genital origami,” a.k.a. bending and stretching their neither private nor particularly sexual parts into different shapes. From the creative (the Loch Ness monster) to cringing (fried chicken), they shock, they awe. But in the translation from live to Memorex, half the fun is lost – that palpable mix of discomfort, surprise, repulsion, and good humor shared by a theater full of people helplessly mesmerized.
