The Sex Show

directed by Sun Mee Chomet


About the show

The Guthrie welcomes the return of artist Sun Mee Chomet with the world premiere of The Sex Show, an edgy movement-theater piece directed by Chomet in collaboration with an ensemble of talented Twin Cities Asian American artists. The Sex Show dives into the heart of stereotypes and sexuality, exploring Asian American identity in surprising and thought-provoking ways, while encouraging community engagement through an open and lively discussion about a taboo subject. Chomet recently appeared in the Guthrie’s production of King Lear, and is well-known for her acclaimed one-woman show How to Be a Korean Woman, which played in the Dowling Studio in 2013.
