About the film

Our debut film is based on a play created by Second Self Ensemble theatre company. As founding members of the company, we at Thousand Faces created the show (called ‘Black Beauty in Irons’) to explore kink, fetish, and BDSM themes from a perspective based firmly within those communities, and specifically through a fictional couple’s experience with animal role-play; more specifically, Ponyplay. We aimed to involve a mainstream audience in a conversation about identity, consent, and alternative forms of expression.

Featuring Eryn Rose and Marcus Quillan

About the live version

This Summer, we were invited to perform at Erotikafton erotica & sexual art festival in Sweden. They were looking for a sex show; we were interested in reviving the live theatre origins of our debut film, but with the added explicit energy of the film based on the play. We went back to the play’s original music & choreography, while adding elements from the film adaptation and extended sexual interaction. Elongating the snapshot elements of the film into a continous and explicit performance piece proved a challenge that we relished in rehearsals and were supported through by the festival. Enjoy this fly-on-the-wall footage shot by audience member and Thousand Faces collaborator Nat Portnoy.
