STUFFED: A Puppet Porno
Rae Red, Thea Cohen

A re-contextualization through a queer lens by playing with heteronormative assumptions of pleasure, its derivation, and how it is depicted for consumption. Through set, costume, and puppet design, this short sets out to explore notions of bodies and spaces and the ways in which they can interact with each other through functionality, delight, desire and SHAME!

A dive into the societal rules and expectations of the celebration of  women’s bodies and their use to show love and power. The Disdress Dolls shimmy, shake, and strip across the stage, challenging concepts of strength and femininity by offering a vulnerable portrait of themselves and playful and macabre world.
