Michael Hurst reflects on his work on Hercules, Xena, Spartacus & the ATC production of Chicago and looks at how the industrys attitude towards sex has changed dramatically in that time.
They say sex sells. Yet sex can be a pretty divisive subject. We face some pretty big questions when our work connects with sex: where’s the line we mustn’t cross? Is there a line? If there is, how do we recognise it? This month’s theme challenges us to confront those questions head-on.
Michael says that while he may not have all the answers to the questions above, he’s certainly spent a lot of time thinking about them.
