The Internet is awash with video nasties and pneumatic pornstars, but where did it all begin? ArtWank pairs the hidden history of vintage pornography with cutting-edge pop cabaret to explore the impact of erotic cinema on the digital generation and all those who came before.  Presenting a unique glimpse into taboo culture through comedy, cabaret and live debate, ring-mistress Ophelia Bitz ("Don't miss her show!" TimeOut London) will guide you through an unforgettable walk on the X-rated wild side. Films made between 1895-1960 are predominantly featured; did you know Thomas Edison made blue movies?

Seeking neither to condone nor condemn pornography, ArtWank's aims are compassionate debate of contemporary sexuality and the use of cabaret for explicitly political purposes. Challenging content framed with bawdy humour and original songs by Michael Roulston and Sarah Louise Young (Fascinating Aida, Cabaret Whore, Darkling, Terror Season at The Southwark Playhouse) have attracted sell-out audiences to The Old Vic Tunnels, Screen on the Green and The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, and now for the first time, The Festival of Erotic Arts
