On Thurs 10th & Fri 11th Oct, Thursday 31st Oct and Friday 1st Nov (Halloween), and Thursday 14th & Friday 15th Nov, House of Kittens the theatre company dedicated to an exploration into the world of erotic storytelling will present Amatory Asylum an evening of conceptual, theatrical vignettes. Guests will converge in the opulent setting of the newly reopened Wellington Members Club on Jermyn Street, one of the most daring and exciting private members bars in London where the audience will find themselves transported into a world of sensual theatre to experience a unique, immersive journey embracing the surreal, the dramatic and the erotic.
House of Kittens; the theatre company dedicated to an exploration into the world of erotic storytelling; is delighted to announce the launch of its latest venture – Amatory Asylum. Passionate about embracing the essence of the sensual pageantries of bygone times and presenting them in a new authentic voice on the forefront of erotic performance art; House of Kittens is performed by ladies of all genders, with each show designed to examine and interpret the endless expression of pleasure with the ultimate aim of engaging audiences in a new, liberated theatrical movement.
Amatory Asylum finds guests taking the role of medical observers within the immersive experience of a surreal and sensual world. Dr Lili La Fleur, head of the Asylum and presiding physician of sexual psychological studies, invites audiences to become part an exclusive experiment; designed to uncover and explore the most covetous of carnal cravings. A space for sexual liberation founded by the illustrious Scientific Humanitarian Committee, audiences will act as record takers, preserving for posterity the decadent acts which they witness; as patients undergo an evening of observation and inflammatory experimentation – which will give flower to their deepest desires through sensory exploration and performance
Seeking sanctuary from a judgmental society in this haven of sensual salvation, audiences can witness Amatory Asylum’s groundbreaking techniques in psychosexual therapy, before enjoying the annual Amatory Asylum Ball where they may mingle with these newly liberated ladies. But never fear – to refrain guests being too swept away in the rather contagious passionate energies, they will be offered a full measure of antidote via an apothecary vile to keep their wanton cravings within control. Taking inspiration from cult films, high fashion, musical icons, and underground art; founder and director Sophie Cohen creates a bold form of storytelling, combined with exceptional costumes, musical curation and collaborative choreography.
Amatory Asylum will be the first event to be hosted in the beautiful setting of the newly reopened Wellington Members Club on Jermyn Street, one of the most daring and exciting private members bars in London. Limited preshow dinner bookings with a set themed menu, are available for those wanting to make a night of it.
