SeXcurity
In Residence at IRT Theater: Yuval Boim and Darren Katz April 23- May 6 2013

SeXcurity follows disillusioned Daniel, an Israeli-American gay screenwriter who, when confronted by a paralyzing family crisis, discovers the power of creativity and the resilience of the self in battling the biggest fear of all  New Jersey. Or Death. It's a matter of perspective.

Inspired by cultural theorist Leo Bersani's writing on radical intimacy, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the events surrounding the 2010 Gaza flotilla, SeXcurity is a humorous and provocative inquiry into the conundrum of identity.
