Serial nudist Frankie van Kan (AKA Frankie Valentine—Stripped Queer, Club Briefs, Baby Got Back, Seen & Heard Cabaret) achieves the improbable task of exposing more of herself than ever before in this deeply intimate piece of confessional theatre. Dubbed “…A dynamite piece of theatre” by ArtsHub, A Body at Work, directed by theatre alumni Maude Davey, is the tale of a queer woman’s sixteen years—and counting—in the sex industry.

Beginning in a strip club, with insightfully refreshing antics of strip club culture and the perceived power dynamics between workers and clients, Frankie unpacks her own whorephobia and the unravelling of boundaries. As she regales you with stories of the body as a commodity and navigating queerness, this honest, humorous, and heartfelt journey asks the question—will they love me at my Madonna when they’ve relished me at my whore?
