Sexting, Shapchat and Sating in a Digital World: Teatro Luna brings ‘Generation Sex to Governors State University’s Center for Performing Arts

University Park, Ill.—(ENEWSPF)–March 28, 2014 – Technology has significantly changed the dating scene. Chicago’s Teatro Luna theater company explores the subject with their latest show, “Generation Sex,” which comes to the stage at Governors State University’s Center for Performing Arts April 11 at 8 p.m.

With “Generation Sex,” Teatro Luna bares all without blushing as it explores how technology has transformed sex, love and relationships. With the new rules of feminism now reduced to 140 characters or less, the “Lunáticas” dissect now outdated ideas of femininity women are still forced to perform, tackling questions like: What is the art of seduction in a digital world that leaves little to the imagination? Can we Instagram loneliness? Is it possible to be our true selves online? Has Facebook flipped how we define family?

From sexting to Skype to the dark side streets of cyberspace, the Ladies of Luna explore how hollow soundbytes and played out lists and articles shape today’s quest for love and satisfaction, with a touch warmer than your welcome screen.

Teatro Luna is America’s Pan-Latina theatre dedicated to creating original devised and single-author work that honors Latina lives and showcases the talents of Latina/Hispana artists.
